Cars Pulled 

City puts brakes on vehicle allowances.

City administrators heeded the cries of upset residents Tuesday when chief administrative officer Keith McGee presented a plan to discontinue car allowances for city employees effective November 30th. Mayor Willie Herenton also requested a similar policy be instituted at MLGW.

Some city employees who received car allowances will be given vehicles from the city's fleet based on their job requirements, while the remainder will be eligible for mileage reimbursement. The city may hire someone to manage the newly established Fleet Services office, but city officials say savings from the new plan will cover the employee's salary.

"We don't have an estimate on that employee's salary yet," said McGee. "The area we're traveling in will be new. We thank [the council] for trusting us to provide leadership." n
