Jeff Jeter Accepts Environmental, Sustainable Fleet Awards for Chesterfield Co, VA

In June, The Nation­al Asso­ci­a­tion of Coun­ties (NACo) award­ed Chester­field Coun­ty, VA two 2014 Achieve­ment Awards for its pro­grams, “Man­ag­ing Fleet Envi­ron­men­tal Wastes to Mit­i­gate Our Impacts” and “Sus­tain­able Fleet Vehi­cle Replace­ment Pro­gram,” in the cat­e­go­ry of Envi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion and Ener­gy. NAFA Trea­sur­er and Trustee Jef­frey Jeter accept­ed the awards on behalf of Chester­field Coun­ty. Jeter serves as Fleet Man­ag­er for Chester­field County’s Depart­ment of Gen­er­al Ser­vices.

“This is a tremen­dous occa­sion for Chester­field County’s fleet sys­tem, and well-earned,” said NAFA’s Chief Exec­u­tive Offi­cer Phillip E. Rus­so, CAE. “Jeff Jeter, through his efforts in his fleet, points the way for­ward for oth­er fleets as well as for NAFA through our new Sus­tain­able Fleet Stan­dard Pro­gram.”

Chester­field Coun­ty is a char­ter mem­ber of NAFA’s Sus­tain­able Fleet Stan­dard Pro­gram.

The NACo Achieve­ment Award Pro­gram is a non-com­pet­i­tive awards pro­gram which seeks to rec­og­nize inno­v­a­tive coun­ty gov­ern­ment pro­grams. Only coun­ty gov­ern­ment and state asso­ci­a­tions of coun­ties are eli­gi­ble to sub­mit appli­ca­tions. Details regard­ing Chester­field County’s award-win­ning pro­grams will be includ­ed in an expand­ed form on NAFA’s Press Room page on the NAFA web­site.

“One of the many rea­sons why NAFA is found­ing the Sus­tain­able Fleet Stan­dard is to help fleets move toward the kind of bench­marks and accom­plish­ments seen in Chester­field County’s achieve­ments,” added Rus­so. “See­ing how their work is being rec­og­nized reaf­firms our efforts.”

NAFA extends con­grat­u­la­tions to Chester­field Coun­ty on their hon­ors.

Now in its beta phase, NAFA’s Sus­tain­able Fleet Stan­dard Pro­gram has accept­ed Chester­field Coun­ty and oth­er char­ter mem­bers includ­ing: Flori­da Pow­er & Light; John­son Con­trols; Port Author­i­ty of New York & New Jer­sey; Repub­lic Ser­vices; Uni­ver­si­ty of Cal­i­for­nia, Davis; and Pep­si­co. More infor­ma­tion is avail­able on the pro­gram-ded­i­cat­ed web­page.
