Description

"Taxpayers in Harrison County, Miss., foot the bill for an impressive fleet of county government vehicles. Elected officials and scores of county employees have take-home automobile privileges with little oversight to prevent personal use of the vehicles and little though toward saving tax dollars. Many officials and employees drive expensive gas-guzzling sorts utility vehicles...The state of Mississippi has 4,400 such passenger vehicles worth $150 million, which cost $17.9 million for mileage reimbursement in 1999." After the story roughly 25 percent of the vehicles were ordered to be parked.
