Chattanooga Implements Take-Home Car Fees

December 23, 2010

CHATTANOOGA, TN - The city of Chattanooga is implementing a charge for take-home vehicles effective in January. The Police Department is the most affected, with 351 of the 395 City's take-home cars, according to the Chattanoogan.

Those who live within the City will be charged 20 cents per mile for driving to and from work. Those who live outside the city will be charged 30 cents a mile.

The current take-home fleet costs the city $580,000 a year. A representative of the Mayor's office said the fee is necessary to balance the city budget. The city is also discontinuing a policy started during a prior administration of paying $400 monthly mileage allowances to certain employees, according to the news source.
