[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Woodbury 8-12-2008 by L.L. No. 6-2008. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The Village Board occasionally is confronted by a situation whereby an employee is required to use a Village vehicle for personal use. The Village Board wishes to adopt a chapter that will permit the Village Board, in its discretion, as part of an employee's compensation, to authorize the use of a Village vehicle for that employee's personal use.
Where, in the judgment of the Village Board, an employee requires the personal use of a Village vehicle in order to perform employment, the Village Board may, in negotiating an employee's compensation, provide for the use of a Village vehicle. If the Village Board makes such a decision authorizing the use of a Village vehicle by an employee, then the Village Board shall make a determination at that time as to the value of the use of the Village vehicle by such employee and, in calculating the employee's yearly salary, shall consider such value as part of the employee's annual income.
The Village Board further determines that if an employee is authorized to use a Village vehicle for his personal use, then the value that is placed on the vehicle for income purposes shall not be considered in the ultimate calculation of the individual employee's retirement.
Notwithstanding the within provision of this chapter, it is understood and agreed that all vehicles used by Village employees during the course of their employment shall not be considered as part of their compensation nor as fringe benefits.
