Key Initiatives

Continue to promote the use of alternative fuels, especially E85 ethanol fuel blend, by increasing access at

strategically located fueling stations.

(Growth & Natural Resources, Objective 3)

Replace motor pool software as support for current solution is being phased out.

Replace natural gas station at the Heavy Vehicle Equipment Shop. This 13-year-old station has had

significant maintenance issues and replacement should ensure more consistent service.

Review costs associated with permitting, maintenance and testing of fueling infrastructure to evaluate future

funding opportunities for these rising costs.
