The Motor Pool assists all Royal Oak departments with delivery of services to residents and businesses through the use of safe and reliable equipment, such as: police cars, small and large trucks, fire apparatus, senior buses, tractors, road sweepers, aerial equipment, etc.
A strong preventative maintenance program followed by an aggressive repair program insures all vehicles and equipment receive prompt, professional, personalized care to insure their longevity.
A computerized fleet management system along with a fully automated fuel control system individually monitors repairs, maintenance, and fuel consumption for over 267 fleet vehicles and equipment keeping operational cost at a minimum.
The motor pool division is also responsible for the Department of Public Service facility maintenance, as well as its utility bill payment. The building uses sodium filled style lighting in its parking and vehicle repair areas for maximum brightness at low wattage costs. Automatic doors with vehicle sensing magnetic loops are used at the main vehicle entrance and exit doors to minimize heat loss in the cold winter months. Modern boilers have been installed to replace old non-repairable units. These newer boilers are one quarter the size of the boilers they replaced, using less energy to run, yet are still able to heat the entire facility.
There are nine employees in the Motor Pool, including a shop supervisor, municipal clerk, stock clerk, garage service worker and four mechanics. Residents who have questions, or would like additional information about the Motor Pool Division are welcome to call 248-246-3370 or stop in at the Department of Public Service.
