Motor Pool                                                                                                                                                               

In an effort to enhance customer service and continue to advance the City's commitment to environmental stewardship, EFM implemented the Motor Pool Program in May of 2013. The Motor Pool is a group of shared vehicles that can be reserved and checked out by City employees, as needed for City business, rather than utilizing their own personal vehicles or department administrative vehicles. Not only does the Motor Pool improve EFM's service to its customers, but it also reduces vehicle emissions in two ways: 1) by allowing employees to share City vehicles rather than taking separate personal or departmental vehicles when traveling to the same location, and 2) through the inclusion and use of alternative fuel vehicles in the Motor Pool which emit fewer pollutants than do traditionally fueled vehicles.

There are currently 23 vehicles in the Motor Pool program, identified below. The following vehicles are available at each location:
