Moved by O’Farrell, seconded by Peterson to adopt the following resolution

 

WEBSTER COUNTY POLICY

USE OF COUNTY VEHICLES

Effective July 1, 2002

 

Emergency occurrences or situations arise during the year, which require immediate response from county personnel with such immediate response serving a public purpose.

 

In order to respond to these occurrences and/or situations, Webster County requires certain personnel to serve on a “24-hour call” basis.

 

In order to diminish response time to these emergencies, this requires the “on-call” personnel to store a county owned vehicle at their residence.

 

It is understood that since advance knowledge of when such occurrences and/or situations will occur is unknown, it will necessitate the vehicles being at constant disposal of the affected personnel.

 

The following named employees serve on a “24-hour call” basis, and keep a county vehicle at their residence during off duty hours:

 

A.      Secondary Road

1. County Engineer and Engineering Staff

 2. Secondary Road Maintenance Superintendent and Foremen

B.       Sheriff’s Department

1.  Sheriff

 2. Sheriff Deputies

C.       Conservation Department

1. Conservation Director

2. Residential Park Ranger and Park Rangers

3. Naturalist

D.      Other employees as necessary and approved by Department Heads

 

These vehicles are only for the use of the employee while conducting county functions and not for the private use by the employees other than that of transportation to and from work.

 

Private use of vehicles shall comply with Federal and State income tax laws.

 

 (TYPE OUT Webster County Policy for Use of County Vehicles).  Motion carried unanimously.
