Dakota County Empire Maintenance Facility Tour

Dakota County is the third largest county in Minnesota. The county has 424 miles of roadways, 83 bridges, 250 traffic signals, and more than 25,000 signs that their public works department is responsible for. In 2016 a study was completed that examined centralizing the majority of their operations into one facility. We are fortunate to be able to tour that facility on June 12th! 

Our speaker and tour guide is Kevin Schlangen, who has over 40 years of experience in the Fleet Industry. Kevin began working in the private sector for contractors and heavy equipment dealerships as a technician and manager.  In 1990 he was hired as the fleet manager for Dakota County, Minnesota. His team is responsible for all operational and capital budgets for every County Department, including law enforcement. 

Kevin has been a speaker at several national conferences that include APWA PWX, GFX, NAFA I&E and CONEXPO-CON/AGG. Kevin and the Dakota County Fleet Team have received numerus local and national awards and their programs are seen as industry best practices. Kevin was inducted into the Public Fleet Hall of Fame in 2021. This tour is sure to be informative and very interesting.
