CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A meeting of the Special Government Operations committee raised some questions about vehicles driven by city workers.

Council member Jeff Berding wants to take away some vehicles from city workers, saying that some employees don't use them for official business, and it's a waste of tax payer money.

In the meeting today, Berding used the example of a Metropolitan Sewer District worker who clocked more than 5,000 miles of commuting, and only four miles of business.

No vote was made on the issue of city workers driving government owned vehicles.
