TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - The mayor of Tuscaloosa is seeking to reduce city vehicle and fuel costs.

Mayor Walt Maddox presented his budget proposal this week, saying it lays the ground for lowering gasoline and diesel fuel expenditures.

The Tuscaloosa News (https://bit.ly/1lrmE2f ) reports that Maddox wants to change the city’s take-home vehicle policy to reduce wear and tear on vehicles. Tuscaloosa has 296 city-owned vehicles in its take-home program. Employees are allowed to drive them to homes up to 25 miles away from City Hall.

His budget calls for a 5 percent cut in maintenance and fuel costs.
