LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - A Lafayette City-Parish Councilman pushing
for GPS tracking of all Lafayette Consolidated Government vehicles.
Councilman Keith Patin said he's seen vehicles at a Lafayette
bank several times in the past, especially on Fridays, as well as
at other locations in Lafayette and even New Iberia.
Lafayette government Chief Administrative Officer Dee Stanley
said disciplinary action is taken against employees found to be
using public vehicles for private business, based on civil service
Stanley said that while it is impossible for every supervisor to
know exactly where employees are at all times, officials don't
believe it is a widespread problem.
