The Asset Management Department provides internal services to City departments, and is comprised of two divisions, Facility Maintenance and Fleet Maintenance.
Facility Maintenance was created to provide comprehensive oversight of asset management and facility maintenance, improving efficiency and effectiveness of City operations. The department is responsible for coordinating and monitoring all facility maintenance, with the exception of the Corpus Christi International Airport.
Fleet Maintenance maintains and manages City vehicles and equipment by providing specifications, handling purchasing, and maintaining vehicles until the end of their service lives. Fleet Maintenance maintains and repairs approximately 1,800 vehicles and pieces of equipment. We serve 28 different entities, including Solid Waste, Utilities and Police.
