Toledo, Ohio – It sounds simple enough, but Commissioner Tina Skeldon Wozniak’s resolution to end the practice of idling county cars will go a long way toward saving taxpayers dollars and protecting our environment.

The resolution, approved unanimously by the Board of County Commissioners at this morning’s meeting, will change the county’s current vehicle policy and direct employees to turn off their cars when they will not be in use for extended period.

“On Earth Day and with gas prices at an all-time record, it’s time to stop wasting our resources,” said Commissioner Tina Skeldon Wozniak. “Ending this practice will save real money for taxpayers and keep hundreds of pounds of carbon dioxide out of our atmosphere.”

According to the new policy, an idling county car will still be permitting during traffic conditions beyond the driver’s control or during routine maintenance of the vehicle.

“During these difficult times, every step must be taken to reduce unnecessary spending and make our community a better place to live. This resolution does both and I’m proud to see it pass this morning,” said Commissioner Wozniak.

There are approximately 80 county vehicles under the direct control of the Lucas County Commissioners. The vast majority of county cars in total are under the control of other countywide elected officials, and the Commissioners will be urging these leaders to also adopt this policy.
