Allegany County: Resolution exempting some Deputies from vehicle use policy pulled

The Allegany County Legislature was expected to vote this afternoon on a resolution that would allow the Sheriff's Department Operations Lieutenant and Narcotics Investigators to be exempt from the county vehicle use policy. Simply stated, they would be allowed to drive officials vehicles to their homes and back. The resolution was withdrawn. It was discovered that the county Ways & Means Committee has the authority to make that change, and a resolution was not required.
 That committee has already approved the measure.
