The Town of Berlin, Connecticut

Country Charm at the Center of Connecticut

Municipal Garage


The Municipal Fleet Garage manages the maintenance and repair of a fleet of approximately 275 mission-critical motor vehicles and off-road equipment, including police cars, fire apparatus and vehicles that transport senior citizens to medical appointments.

The Fleet Garage also strategically plans the replacement of vehicles and equipment, creates specifications for vehicle acquisition (with stakeholder input), acquires, outfits, performs scheduled maintenance on, and disposes of all town vehicles. Mechanics maintain all on- and off-road equipment for the town and perform general repairs, oil changes, preventive maintenance, inspections, recalls, emissions, fabrication of trucks and pre- and post- storm inspections.  Using a cloud-based software system, the Fleet Garage tracks metrics related to work performed, fuel delivery and consumption, mileage, labor costs, and Federal requirements related to registration, emission and USDOT brake inspections.

The technicians at the Fleet Garage are highly trained and currently hold multiple certifications with the National Institute of Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) for both passenger cars and trucks, both medium and heavy duty, as well as advanced diagnostics and air conditioning.  Technicians are registered with Ford Fleet, allowing for quicker in-house diagnostic work. Additionally technicians are certified welders, allowing full fabrication capacity.
