Excerpt from Annual Report of the Public Works Department: For the Year Ending December 31, 1950 The Automotive Division was created, effective February 8, 1950. This division is responsible for the care, control, and maintenance of all department-owned vehicles. All department garages, gasoline pumps, and related properties are also placed under the jurisdiction of this division. The division in its first year of operation has been operated very efficiently. It is well said that a Public W'orks Department operates on wheels and that the proper care of its vehicles is one of the most important functions that such a department can perform. Prior to the establishment of the automotive section of the department as a separate division, it operated as a subdivision of the Highway Division and, in my opinion, did not receive the recognition that this important unit warrants. It now receives the full attention of a Division Engineer who has systematized the work of the division, and has introduced businesslike methods in providing for an adequate inventory control and a regular check on all motor vehicles to insure proper maintenance and operation.
