The city promises to trim $100 million from the budget by cutting it’s fleet of 29,000 vehicles by 10 percent.
“A city vehicle is not a perk,” said deputy mayor Cas Holloway on Monday.
He admits that there are legitimate reasons to be assigned a city car.
“If you are a person at a level or at a job title where you have to respond to services, and I can tell you the city has a lot of services that go 24/7, water, sewer, police, fire, sanitation,” he said.
But he says if you don’t meet the criteria, that’s why public transportation is so good in New York City.
