Philadelphia Mayor to Cut 500 Vehicles from Fleet

March 23, 2009

PHILADELPHIA – As part of a proposal to cut Philadelphia's budget for the 2010 fiscal year, Mayor Michael Nutter plans to cut 500 vehicles from the city fleet, according to the New York Times.

In addition to cutting 500 vehicles from the city's 6,000-unit fleet, other proposed cost-cutting measures included reducing the city's 23,757-person workforce by 250 positions and calling for all city employees to take one voluntary furlough day, a measure that would save $4.1 million, reported the Times.

Nutter announced the measures last week during his proposal to temporarily raise city sales and property taxes in efforts to fill the city's budget gap.
