Wash. County Lowers Car Allowance for Officials

December 15, 2015

The Snohomish County Council has lowered the monthly car allowance for officials by 7% in the wake of a whistle-blower complaint by an analyst claiming he was pressured to inflate the numbers.

The council will lower the current rate of $569.32 by 7% for 2016, reports The Herald of Everett. The vote was unanimous.

Earlier this year, James Lee said he boosted compensation by more than $250 per month by basing the rates on more expensive cars from the county's fleet and covering the full tab for insurance. Lee said he increased the number to $569.32 from $317.07 per month.
