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.
