Our motto is "Strive for Continuous Improvement". Reduced funding and increased demand for services necessitate our adjusting to circumstances while stretching the limits of manpower, machinery and money. Our department receives and works over 2400 "Request for Service" per year, in addition to our own in-house work orders.

Carpenter / Paint Shop
The quality and craftsmanship displayed by our staff is a source of pride for the department. It continues to be a key part of our ability to maintain and adapt our facilities to the changing needs of our customers. Custom cabinet work, remodeling and quality painting have created untold savings for Tulsa County .

Building Maintenance Department
The maintenance staff is primarily responsible for the following locations: County Courthouse, Ray Jordan Administration Building, Carol Crowson Annex Building, Apache Warehouse, Carpenter Shop, Central Garage, Charles Page Warehouse, Election Board, Faulkner Building, Family Justice Center, Parks Office, Social Services Complex and Headquarters Building. .

In addition, we are called on at times to assist at OSU Extension, LaFortune Park, District Parks, and District Garages. The age, condition and high amount of traffic of these buildings demand our utmost attention every day.

Fleet Operations
We believe it is a tribute to each of our mechanics when we report that 50% of our 410 vehicle fleet have passed the projected 80,000 mile replacement schedule, yet, are still in service every day. Our staff does a remarkable job of maintaining Tulsa County vehicles at the Central Garage. Our fleet logs more than 5.5 million miles annually, with the majority of those miles being driven by the Sheriff's fleet of patrol and transportation vehicles.
