The Fleet Management Department services more than 850 units at three county-owned garages on Rockland Key, Marathon, and Plantation Key. This department is responsible for maintaining, repairing, and providing fuel for the county fleet, which includes automobiles, vans, trucks, heavy equipment, and 70 generators.
Monroe County Fleet Management Department’s three maintenance shops obtained Blue Seal of Excellence certifications from the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). The shops are the first public or private auto repair facilities in Monroe County to achieve the certification.
Blue Seal of Excellence certifications require at least 75 percent of technicians performing diagnostics and repairs to be ASE-certified, and at least one ASE-certified technician must cover each area of service offered in the shop. Monroe County’s Fleet Management team has 15 technicians holding a total of 122 ASE certifications, with 11 Master certifications.
