Officials To Be Reminded Of County Vehicle Policy

A committee of the Putnam County commission has recommended that the county executive write a letter to all department heads and elected officials, reminding them of the county's policy as it relates to county-owned vehicles. That action comes after commissioner Marson McCormick proposed banning the use of campaign signs in vehicles. McCormick also wanted such vehicle to be better identified as belonging to Putnam County. But other commissioners say McCormick's concerns are already addressed -- either by state law or by existing policy. McCormick questioned whether that policy was being enforced, but did not specifically tell the committee which county vehicles he thought might be in violation of it.
