Md. County Council Criticized for Take-Home Cars

February 10, 2017

The Prince George County (Md.) Council has drawn criticism for costing the county $110,000 a year on automobile allowances and take-home cars.

Of the nine members on the council, six took take-home vehicles. Between 2011 and 2015, these councilmembers with take-home cars were involved in at least 15 collisions and received at least 107 citations, reports the Washington Post.

The councilmembers also each pumped an average of $1,400 in fuel from county fueling stations last year.
