Albany-- The interim Albany city manager is taking away some car keys to save tax money. Lem Edwards is no longer allowing some employees to take home city vehicles.

Edwards, who's been city manager for just one month, says cutting back on vehicle usage can save thousands of dollars in gas and maintenance costs. "The cars are available if they need to go somewhere during the day. They can check a vehicle out, respond to whatever actions need to be taken, and bring the car back and put it back in the pool."

Edwards says he's still looking at all departments to see if the vehicles are being properly used and maintained.

Edwards also plans to review the efficiency of each department, hiring and firing employees if needed.
