The Baton Rouge Public Works Department wants to expand a GPS tracking system for department owned vehicles. 

The monitoring system allows supervisors to know where a truck has been. It can also help with response time when dispatching a crew.

Currently, 19 vehicles in the DPW fleet have the service. A bid process would be used to equip hundreds of other vehicles.

Software costs about $1,000, and monitoring costs about $30 per vehicle, per month.

Lafayette is considering a similar system.
