No Take-Home Vehicles for City Department Heads

September 03, 2010

MANDEVILLE, LA - City of Mandeville, La., Mayor Donald Villere is doing away with take-home vehicles for department heads. Villere told the City Council August 26 that the mayor, the planning director, and the finance director will no longer be provided with take-home vehicles. They will however, be provided with a vehicle allowance, reported St. Tammany News.

The change went into effect September 1 with the start of the new fiscal year. The amount paid to each person will be based on the cost of a four-door midsize or large vehicle, maintenance, and fuel expenses for mileage of 15,000 miles per year as well as suitable insurance. The current calculated value for these items is $1,015 per month.

Villere said the police chief and officers will continue to be allowed to take home their cars as well as the director of public works, who often has to go out on emergency calls during the night and on weekends, according to the newspaper.
