Well folks as I predicted some time back the Mayor would be asking for and getting a new car. He did and did. Council did approve a new car for him and his old car is going to become a car used as a ” motor pool car.” I’m sure anyone doing business on behalf of the City while working will be able to check out this car. They will have to check out the car I believe this will include logging the use of the vehicle where driven, mileage, etc. As I understand it the car will not be taken home happy to see that they are going to do this. No one working for the City should have to drive around in their personal car to do business on behalf of the city during working hours. That includes council members…I’ve never been able to understand why they have to drive all over the city in their own cars. I would like them to have access to the “motor pool.” However, I still disagree with some who are taking City cars home with them. I still feel that they can “check out” a car when they need to use one, but we still have people taking city cars home for no apparent reason except they are allowed to.
