September 27, 2006

BOSTON – After a Daily News report on take-home municipal vehicles, the Massachusetts state inspector general is pushing more than a dozen local communities to impose strict standards over employees getting a taxpayer-fueled ride. The Office of the Inspector General is the state’s watchdog agency empowered to prevent and detect fraud, waste, and abuse in government.Senior Assistant Inspector General Jack McCarthy said Framingham, Weston, Sudbury, Hopkinton, Westborough, Holliston, Southborough, Northborough, Ashland, Marlborough, Natick, Waltham, and Milford received the letter, according to the Daily News. The letter calls on officials to review existing policies or create rules governing vehicle use to “ensure that public funds are being spent wisely.”The letter also included the inspector general’s Dec. 2004 guide to administering vehicle management policies.
