ABOUT THE DISTRICT
The Greater Los Angeles County Vector Control District (GLACVCD) is a non-enterprise, independent, special district, enabled and empowered to act as a public health agency as a result of legislation incorporated in the California State Health and Safety Code. GLACVCD is one of five mosquito and vector control districts in Los Angeles County. The District serves approximately 6.8 million residents in a 1,338 square mile area, making GLACVCD the largest vector control district in Los Angeles County.
Under the general direction of the District’s General Manager (GM), the Facilities and Fleet Maintenance Supervisor is responsible for planning, directing, organizing, supervising, and coordinating the activities and operations of the Facilities and Maintenance Department. This includes repair of all District vehicles, specialized and spray equipment, and all District facilities, including general building and yards maintenance, procurement, and implementing short and long term goals and objectives for the District. The incumbent plans, coordinates and manages the daily operational work activities of the Maintenance Mechanics (MM), and is expected to assist them in the execution of their duties.
The Facilities and Fleet Maintenance Supervisor occasionally designs and fabricates special equipment for the operational control and scientific-technical programs; maintains a computerized inventory of shop tools, vehicles and spray equipment parts; is responsible for the stocking and release of inventory items; prepares and manages an annual maintenance budget under the direction of the GM and is responsible for ordering and procuring items and reconciling expenses associated with that budget; generates and maintains various reports and forms relative to his/her duties; and coordinates work with outside vendors and contractors for maintenance and automotive services; and performs related work as required.
The Facilities and Fleet Maintenance Supervisor is a supervisory position responsible for the management and oversight of the Facilities and Maintenance Department and department staff. The Facilities and Fleet Maintenance Supervisor takes direction from the GM, but works in close cooperation with department heads throughout the District, and exercises considerable judgment in executing the details associated with the basic functions of the position. The Facilities and Fleet Maintenance Supervisor is directly responsible for the daily work performance and activities of the Maintenance Mechanics.
The Facilities and Fleet Maintenance Supervisor comprises an active component of both the management team and District’s Safety Committee. The Facilities and Fleet Maintenance Supervisor is a State Certified Mosquito Control Technician and is occasionally responsible for the operation (driving) of certain vehicular pesticide application equipment, exercising judgment in evaluating mosquito-producing or vector-causing conditions, and selecting and using appropriate vector control measures. This class works relatively independently and is accountable for vehicle and pesticide application equipment maintenance, repair and safety as well as general building and yard maintenance. The Facilities and Fleet Maintenance Supervisor comprises an active component of the District's supervisory team which collaborates to assist the general Manager in planning, organizing, directing, and evaluating the District's intra-agency programs (i.e. administrative, operational, scientific technical,public education and information, and maintenance).
