SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Salt Lake County may put an end to its rapid rotation of its fleet.

County leaders are now looking to ax the fleet's method of reselling cars an average of 18 months after purchase.

Mayor Peter Corroon said the rapid rotation system is simply costing the county too much. He said instead of saving on employees because of the low maintenance, the county has become a car dealership.

Replacing vehicles within one to three years has meant high costs to run the county's auto sales, as well as extensive costs to get used vehicles ready for sale and new cars equipped for county use.

Corroon and other department heads met with consultants yesterday to review a possible fix to the system. Corroon said he will likely push to extend the life of county vehicles as part of a fleet report in July.
