Legislative Audit Says Utah State Motor Pool Too Large

October 20, 2005

SALT LAKE CITY – The state's motor pool is too large and agencies aren't using the cars enough or paying high enough rates to steer the whole operation from a deficit that can require a budget subsidy, a legislative audit found, according to the Associated Press. The state Division of Fleet Operations needs to balance the size of the fleet with the need for it and keep better track of take-home vehicles, according to Legislative Auditor General John Schaff. The motor pool plans to cover $300,000 of a projected $490,000 deficit this fiscal year by raising the rates it charges state agencies. The Division of Fleet Operations reduced the fleet to 123 vehicles from about 250 in recent years and may have to cut further to eliminate that $490,000 deficit, the audit recommended.
