Request Summary (Agenda Caption):
Request for approval of changes to attributes of certain vehicle control numbers for various departments.

Background and Discussion:
Every county vehicle must have a Commissioners Court-approved Vehicle Control Number (VCN). A VCN represents an authorized slot for a specific type of vehicle. Vehicles designed for use on public roads, including vehicles leased for more than 30 days, must be assigned to an approved VCN (heavy equipment and vehicles that require a commercial driver's license are exempt).

VCNs specify the fund (general fund, grant, etc.), the authorized vehicle type, business purpose, whether it's leased vs. owned, and the take-home status for any vehicle that will be put into that VCN.

Changes to a department's list of approved VCNs during the year require Court approval. An approved and available VCN must be specified before acquiring (including leasing) a vehicle.
