Mahanth joined City of Madison as Fleet Superintendent in 2017 after 16 years of working in New York City government operations. Mahanth worked for NYC Parks & Recreation managing vehicle repair, recycling, waste collection and volunteer programs, amongst other tasks. In 2012 he began overseeing the safety program for all City departments using the 30,000-vehicle fleet, and helped manage preparations and response to Hurricane Sandy, which struck the East Coast the same year.
In Madison, he is focused on making the City fleet the greenest, safest, and most cost efficient possible in coordination with his colleagues in every department. Mahanth has also never owned a personal vehicle and gets around by bus or bike.
