The Mountlake Terrace City Council gave its approval Monday night to continue a fleet maintenance agreement with the City of Shoreline, providing vehicle repair, maintenance and upfitting to its King County neighbor in 2013.
The city’s Fleet Management Division began providing vehicle maintenance to the City of Shoreline’s 75 vehicles in 2010. The working relationship has continued since.
“The agreement with the City of Shoreline is a partnership that benefits both communities,” said Mountlake Terrace City Manager John Caulfield. “The partnership allows the City of Mountlake Terrace to operate its own fleet of vehicles at a reduced cost as the City of Shoreline shares in the overhead and labor expense. In addition, the City of Mountlake Terrace provides the City of Shoreline with improved service levels, reduced costs and reduced overhead.”
The City of Mountlake Terrace has a similar agreement with the City of Brier, Caulfield noted.
