This question is for Craig Weinaug, county administrator. Has the county given county employees special permission to use county vehicles as their own personal cars to transport children to school and personal shopping? Is this a violation of county policy, and how does this affect the county's car insurance policy?
Weinaug said it is a violation of county policy to use county property for anything other than county business. Exceptions to this policy may be granted in writing by the county administrator. Exceptions are rarely granted, and the exceptions that are granted cover one-time situations that involve little or no actual cost to the county, involve an emergency, or both.
