Statham reviewed its vehicle use policy at its meeting last Tuesday.
It was decided that allowing vehicles to be driven to and from work will be left up to the mayor and council’s discretion. Examples when it would be appropriate are as follows:
•managerial employees Whose personal use of a city-owned vehicle is consistent with the requirements of the position.
•employees Who are subject to hour call out or have job responsibilities requiring highly irregular work hours.
•duty vehicles designed or equipped for high priority response where response time will be enhanced by allowing the vehicle to remain in custody of individual employee. Employees assigned to duty vehicles which are taken home must be available to respond upon request on a 24-hour basis any time the employee has custody of the vehicle.
