Take-Home Vehicles Cut by 40% in Suffolk County

April 6, 2005

SUFFOLK COUNTY, NY – According to Newsday, Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy has cut the number of county take-home vehicles by nearly 40 percent. Levy is trying to reduce cars handed out as "political perks," and would like to see the cars available as pool vehicles for business use instead of sitting in the driveways of appointed employees.Levy believes the move can prolong the life of the vehicles and that the county was able to put off spending $2 million on new ones last year. Some skeptics have said that Levy's announcement has been mostly "for the benefit of PR," as Legis. Daniel Losquardro put it. Losquardro questioned whether the county has enough pool vehicles to ensure that employees do not use their own cars to carry out county duties.
