Vehicle fleet audit a good idea

A Daily Mail editorial from the Charleston Gazette-Mail 

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The state of West Virginia owns one vehicle for every five state employees, according to preliminary numbers available to legislators. While that number sounds high, the report is still better news than what was reported in 2009.

At that time, record keeping was so poor that no one in government could tell how many vehicles the state owned and operated. Today we know: 7,700.

Is that an adequate number of state owned vehicles for government to conduct its business? Is it too many? Not enough?

Is the state getting the right value for its vehicles? Are they used appropriately? Are they misused? Are some state vehicles being used for an assigned employee’s private use?

These and more are all worthwhile questions…
