A $50.00 cleaning fee will be assessed and added to rental charges if a non-approved animal has occupied the vehicle.

The department will now be charged for the fuel usage during the time of the rental. These fuel charges will be based on either one or both of the following:

1)The gas card charges at the time of rental (Every vehicle has an assigned fuel card that is given to the driver at the time of rental. It is valid for use as a debit transaction).

2) The rental vehicle must be returned with the same level of fuel that it had when the vehicle was initially picked up. Failure to return the vehicle on the same fuel level will result in a refueling rate of $3.00 a gallon.

Please remove all trash from the vehicle upon return. A $25.00 cleaning fee will be assessed for all vehicles that are returned with trash, stains or spills. Examples: Tissues, Food, Cups, Bags, etc.
