Marshfield, Wis., Puts the Brakes on Take-Home City Vehicles

January 26, 2005

MARSHFIELD, WI – In the City of Marshfield, Wis., city-owned vehicles may no longer be used for commuting due to a unanimous Board of Public Works decision. The vote was put in place in order to reduce non-work mileage, according to the Marshfield News-Herald.

A total of nine positions previously had been authorized to take city vehicles home because they were subject to emergency calls, said Dan Knoeck, public works director.

Although the board discussed allowing supervisors who are on call to take vehicles home, no action was taken to include such use as part of the policy change. Board member and Alderman Tim Kraus said he didn't believe there were any situations that necessitated an on-call supervisor to immediately access a city vehicle.
