Virginia Beach Public Utilities Truck

Virginia News Source recently ran a piece, with photos, of city vehicles engaged in questionable activities. I had my own expierience today.

Coming home from the previously mentioned shopping trip at Walmart, I passed a Virginia Beach Public Utilities truck. In Norfolk. Truck #787 was southbound on Kempsville Road, crossing Virginia Beach Boulevard at Noon. Granted, the truck was heading in the direction of Virginia Beach, but what was it doing in Norfolk in the first place?

I hope someone has a good explaination.

The City's mobile radio communications contractor is Gately Communications in Norfolk. Vehicle 787 is assigned to Public Utilities Equipment Manager. He was returning from a meeting with Gately. Kempsville Road is on the travel route back to the Operations Division facility on Dam Neck Road.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at
