The city has reached an agreement with a few city service garages to do maintenance work on certain city vehicles at a fixed price. This includes an hourly rate for general work and specific rates for more routine maintenance jobs, such as oil changes and brake work.
The garages will be paid $60 a hour for the general work. Participating garages are C&C Family Automotive and Huntington Center Gulf, and to a certain extent, AJ’s Service Center. All are based in Shelton, which is one of the reasons they were selected.
