The Oakland Press: New mayor wipes out perks

PONTIAC - Mayor Clarence Phillips is eliminating all administrative cars and car allowances, and the City Council aims to crack down on the use of contract employees - all in an effort to squash rising budget deficits.

"All car allowances are being eliminated," after Jan. 31, Phillips said. "No (car) leases will be provided to any employees or executive, that includes me and my team. I have the same car I came into office with. It's a Bonneville, and it says Pontiac, and that's what I prefer to drive," the new mayor said 17 days into his four-year term.
