Hartford Auditor Releases Report On City-Issued Cars

Hartford should create a vehicle-sharing pool and put in place better systems to account for cars, said City Auditor H. Patrick Campbell.

It should also update its policies to restrict personal use of the vehicles and consider equipping them with GPS to keep track of them.

The Thursday report comes after a slew of problems that started over the summer when Mayor Pedro Segarra’s former chief of staff, Jared Kupiec, was spotted with his city vehicle after he resigned.

Then two September accidents of city-vehicles, one that led to the firing of Deputy Public Works Director Rhonda Moniz-Carroll – who was driving drunk when she crashed her city car.

In a cost-cutting measure, Segarra has chopped the number of take-home vehicles from 73 to 45.
