While the code specifies reimbursement procedures, record keeping requirements, insurance requirements, and reimbursement rate schedules, it does not contain specific guidelines with qualifying criteria for when positions should be eligible for this benefit. This resolution directs the Department of Employee Relations, with assistance from the Comptroller’s Office and the Department of Public Works, to develop citywide administrative guidelines relating to the provision of mileage reimbursement to City of Milwaukee management employees who are required to drive their own personal vehicles in the performance of their job duties.
