UI Fleet Service fuel island back in service as of June 24, call ahead for vehicle rental

To All Fleet Services Customers:

Officials with the University of Iowa Fleet Services announced that the fuel island was inspected today, Tuesday, June 24, and it is now back in service. There was no contamination found in the fuel and all of the pump electronics are operating normally.

The Fleet Services vehicle rental operation has temporarily relocated to Mossman Business Services Building on Riverside Drive on Old Highway 218 South in Iowa City. This is the same building that houses Printing, General Stores and Equipment Rental. To view a map, visit

When the parking situation works itself out, and UI staff and faculty can park their vehicles in Lot 64 (UI Fleet Services old lot), they will move this operation to the first floor of the University Services Building. UI Fleet Services staff hope that will be later this week. When the flood waters finally recede completely, they will have a trailer placed back where it was located before the flood and will move back there. They anticipate at least three to four weeks before that will be possible.

For those picking up a car or retuning a car during this time of uncertainty please call (384-0564) before trying to find UI Fleet Services to see where they are located. When people pick up the vehicle, Fleet Services staff will let them know where to leave it, and what to do with the keys and the paperwork. They will also be calling all customers the day before the scheduled pick-up to make sure everyone knows where Fleet Services are located. Parking is still available at all locations for people to park their personal vehicle.

For more information, call UI Fleet Services Manager Mike Wilson at 335-5088.
