City of Jackson Adds Alternative Fuel Vehicles to Its Fleet


The City of Jackson, Tenn., has introduced five alternative fuel vehicles to its municipal fleet.

The additions include three propane autogas cruisers for the Jackson Police Department and two compressed natural gas trucks, an F250 and an F450, for the Jackson Health and Sanitation Department, which will use the trucks for debris collection.

The alternative fuel initiative is a partnership between the city and the Jackson Energy Authority.

“The alternative fuel model was not in place and had to be developed,” explained Jackson Mayor Jerry Gist, later adding, “This team is motivated by the innovation, long-term sustainability and cost savings to the city.”
