How Do You Feel About A County Employee Drinking And Driving Your County Vehicle?
Warnings to the County Executive Rick Pollitt have gone out about a particular County Employee regularly using a County vehicle to go out locally and openly drinking and driving. The original warning was ignored.
Another face to face attempt to discuss this matter happened soon after and once again Rick Pollitt brushed it off.
A third attempt was then taken directly to that County Employee in which that individual agreed that it was wrong and it would never happen again.
Last night that very same County Employee was witnessed once again at the very same Bar drinking alcohol with icy road conditions. The Employee tried to disguise the vehicle behind a neighboring business but keen eyes picked up on the individual as well as the vehicle and photos were taken as evidence.
Mind you, there is no policy, (believe it or not) on the books for County Employees to NOT drink and drive County vehicles. Where does common sense prevail? However, there is language stating they can not use these vehicles for personal use.
