Audit: WCSD Could Save Money By Cutting Car Benefit

An internal audit of the Washoe County School District suggests the agency could save money by cutting back on the number of vehicles it provides to certain administrators.

Two audits recommended taking away district cars for 22 top administrators, which would save $32,000 a year on fuel and maintenance expenses.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports a district-owned vehicle may be assigned when an employee travels at least 1,000 miles a month.

District spokesperson Victoria Campbell said administrators are not allowed to use the cars for anything other than commuting to the office and for work.

But the audit suggests that money would be saved by not allowing the employees to take the vehicles home every night.
