Personal use of City Emergency Vehicles!

How is it that city emergency vehicles can be used as "personal work" vehicles? I don't think it's fair nor wise to use my tax dollars to fund a persons ride to and from their "other" job!! I see it all the time that an city emergency vehicle is parked at a plant that's not even within the city boundaries for 12hrs. at a time during their obvious work period!!!

How about the city giving me a vehicle just to go back forth to work, or maybe just the gas, or pay for my insurance, heck, since I'm paying for it how about just an oil change for my car!

I don't pay taxes to purchase vehicles, the gas that goes in them, the insurance, milage, etc. so that it can sit idle at a plant! It's doing me no good as a citizen of this city any good at all during the time its at that persons "other" job! Not to mention the ethical and legality issues that come to mind!!

I would think they and the city would be using better judgement when it comes to using my tax dollars!! Just saying!!!
