City-Operated Gas Station to "Pump Up Placentia" By Generating General Fund Revenue

The City of Placentia is pleased to announce it has entered into a unique partnership with Galaxy Oil Company to operate the “Placentia Gas Station,” also known as Best 4 Less 76 gasoline station at 480 S. Placentia Avenue.  Through the partnership, a portion of the revenue generated by the gas station will go directly back to the City, providing an incentive for residents and visitors to “Pump Up Placentia” by putting money directly back into the local economy.

The City’s agreement with Galaxy Oil is for a period of 10 years.  The Placentia Gas Station is estimated to generate $25,000 in base annual rent for the City and up to $350,000 in annual General Fund Revenue.  

“This is a chance for customers to fill-up at a gas station where a big chunk of their dollars spent will go directly back into City coffers to fund our local services and programs,” said Placentia Mayor Chad Wanke.  “The major aim here is to not only deliver quality gas at a low price but also offer customers a compelling reason to fill-up and support their City.”

The location of the Placentia Gas Station, 480 S. Placentia Avenue, is a City-owned property on the corner of W. Crowther Avenue and S. Placentia Avenue.  Though there are many gas stations in the region, City Administrator Damien Arrula says residents can now choose a station where they know a portion of every dollar spent goes back to City programs, infrastructure, and services.

“Almost everybody needs gas on a regular basis,” Arrula said. “We want residents to know they have a choice to fill up at a place where some of that money spent is being directly returned back into their community. Every time they fill up it helps us with critical services such as police and fire.”

Effective with the agreement, fill-ups on all City vehicles that cannot occur at the City Yard pumps will now occur at the Placentia Gas Station.
