High gasoline prices have prompted the Borough of Flemington in New Jersey to scrutinize its take-home fleet more closely. Council members recently approved a resolution requiring employees with take-home vehicles to keep a weekly log of their mileage driven, TapIntoFlemington/Raritan reported.
The new resolution updates the borough's Personnel Policies & Procedures Manual and states that those with take-home vehicles “shall submit a weekly vehicle mileage log each Monday for the previous week.” The log must indicate the starting mileage of each use a brief description of the necessity of use, the name of the employee, and the date and time of vehicle use. The log must be completed daily, including weekends if applicable.
This requirement will be reevaluated once gas prices stabilize, the newspaper reported.
