During budget discussions from the Clintonville Common Council, some residents had become concerned about the city’s role in paying a vehicle allowance to the Parks and Recreation Manager.
Clintonville Mayor Lois Bressette said the decision was made years ago because it’s actually more cost-effective.
“Rather than buying a vehicle for our Parks Director to drive around, we give him an allowance for his own vehicle use,” said Bressette. “That was decided on by the Parks and Recreation Committee, the Finance Committee, and council approved a continuation of that.”
Ultimately the council says that paying the allowance is cheaper than purchasing a new vehicle and paying for its insurance.
