Anoka County Fleet Capital
For the 2022 budget, Anoka County established a capital replacement program. The program looks at the needs of the county for the next 10 years to develop a plan. The cost of the vehicles are then budgeted based on this plan. Each year the needs of the departments are reviewed and the plan updated accordingly.
During 2020, Highway, Parks, and Social Services purchased additional vehicles with CARES Act funding. These vehicles will be phased out of the fleet as need is reduced.
The funding for the program is an allocation. This allocation is funded with the levy dollars previously used to purchase vehicles in the department along with grant and other funding sources that are available to some departments.
The Sheriff's office is only participating in the policy development of the plan at this time. They have their capital needs built into their operations budget.
