The City of Sacramento’s fleet division was recognized by Government Fleet as one of the top four leading government fleets in North America.
The top four included the City of Denver, Colorado, City of Dublin, Ohio, and City of Fort Wayne, Indiana. The organization ranked 20 local government entities.
