Conn. City Auditor Proposes Vehicle-Sharing Pool

October 29, 2013

The chief auditor of the City of Hartford, Conn., has recommended a vehicle-sharing pool and GPS trackers to reduce the cost of take-home vehicles in the city's fleet, reports the Hartford Courant.

In his report, H. Patrick Campbell also suggested updating city policies to restrict personal use of vehicles.

Following a directive from Hartford elected leaders earlier this year, the city reduced the number of take-home vehicles from 73 to 45 between March and September, Government Fleet previously reported.

The Hartford Internal Audit Commission reviewed the operations and procedures related to city-issued take-home cars after Council President Shawn Wooden called for the audit. Police had found a city vehicle parked outside the home of a former chief of staff of Mayor Pedro Segarra.
