After controversy over who’s driving around in Hartford’s city vehicles, Mayor Pedro Segarra has cut the fleet back from 73 take-home vehicles on the roads to 45.
He blamed the move on financial issues and said he may call for further reductions.
Two incidents this year involve the misuse of Hartford vehicles.
The first, in July when Segarra’s former Chief of Staff was caught using a city car after he had already resigned his post.
The most recent, just earlier this month, when the city’s deputy public works director crashed her city vehicle and was charged with driving drunk.
