Dayton Daily News finds wasteful mileage reimbursements in Ohio cities, counties

Many city and county governments in Ohio pay employees more for mileage reimbursements than the state government does, and they could save hundreds of thousands of dollars annually if they switched to pay what the state does, according to a Dayton Daily News report published Wednesday.

How they did it, from the Dayton Daily News website:

"To get this story, the Dayton Daily News over several weeks assembled two years of financial data from more than a dozen local and state governments, then compared mileage reimbursement benefits. A reporter then asked decision-makers why they were more or less generous than other area leaders and what impact they thought their decisions would have on public funds."
