Travel Expenses for Privately Owned Automobiles
Adopt an ordinance amending Ordinance Code Section 2.12.2509 (c) regarding travel expenses for privately owned automobiles.
The Ordinance Code currently provides that the reimbursement rate for travel by privately owned automobiles is actual costs, not to exceed the allowable business driving deduction rate established by the Internal Revenue Service, for miles actually traveled.
This item keeps the commitment of responsive, effective and collaborative government through goal number 20; government decisions are based on careful consideration of future impact, rather than temporary relief or immediate gain.
The total cost of the changes is approximately $15,346.
