BOE votes to put Drivers Ed. car to use

The Demopolis Board of Education voted Friday to put the high school’s Drivers Education vehicle to use among a handful of employees year-round.

Dr. Al Griffin said insurance costs were approximately $1,600 annually and that he investigated insuring it only for two months.

However, he said offering it to employees who draw a mileage reimbursement would result in a better use of funds for the city.

“It will actually save us a few dollars,” he said.

Griffin will be among those insured to drive the vehicle, which he said he would only use to attend meetings within the region rather than driving his personal vehicle and seeking a mileage reimbursement.
