Mayor Kristen Brown says the move will save the cities thousands of dollars a year.

Columbus Mayor Kristen Brown has ordered all of Columbus‘s city employees — except police and firefighters — to stop using their city vehicles for errands or other personal reasons, starting tomorrow.

Brown says the move will keep more than a dozen cars on city property, which she says will save thousands of dollars each year in gas and maintenance costs. Columbus‘s police chief says public safety workers were exempted because they are always on call, and says taking city vehicles home helps them quickly mobilize detectives, SWAT members, and others.
