For the second year in a row, City of Madison Fleet collaborated with Alliant Energy, Madison Gas & Electric, and Wisconsin Clean Cities to bring you Sustainable Transportation, a virtual educational series for fleets. During the four-week series this fall, each session brings together industry experts to talk about a variety of sustainable transportation topics.
Our very own superintendent, Mahanth Joishy, participated in the first session to discuss how we maintain our sustainable fleet. He was joined by Lonnie Fischer, Fleet Services Manager for the City of Milwaukee – Fleet Services Section, and Paul Flogel, Automotive Technology Program Director & Instructor at Madison Area Technical College. Even though this session has passed, you can still watch a recording of the discussion.
There are two more weeks of the series left – register today!
