I have noticed on numerous occasions city employees using city vehicles for personal use. With the high cost of gas nowdays, it seems to me they can use their own cars and trucks on their OWN time. They are stealing for us.

Just wondering if you have ever used any of your employers resources for personal gain? Telephone, paper, pens, binder clips, late lunches, ect. If so, what's the difference?

Many employees are required to man their vehicles during business hours. Call city hall and ask what their policies are, get a unit number to be certain they can determine which dept and if its a supervisors vehicle.

Difference is:
City resources = tax dollars
Private employer = private dollars

Stealing is stealing, no doubt wrong in either case.

Nearly always, the personal use of a company vehicle is looked upon as a benefit.

Sometimes city or county employees who might be on 24-hour call are allowed to drive the vehicle home with the understanding that they won't use it for personal business. I don't see how the ordinary citizen can tell if they're violating that policy.

It appears that any time the city of Deer Park treats its employees with anything other than contempt, the local Teabaggers express outrage. What a town.
