Hawaiian County Reduces Take-Home Vehicle Perk

March 21, 2014

Maui County has cut the number of employees eligible to take home a county-owned vehicle by 52 percent to 80 in response to media scrutiny that the program fell prey to poor record-keeping.

Prior to the new policy, employees were taking home 165 county vehicles, reports the Maui News. The outlet had published stories questioning the high number of take-home vehicles in 2010, reports the Associated Press.

Several employees from the Department of Water Supply are challenging the decision because they often need to respond to water main breaks in the middle of the night. The department's 1993 union arbitration decision also upheld the perk. The department leads the county in take-home vehicles with 52.
