MILEAGE REIMBURSEMENT NOTICE

(January 2016 Federal Mileage Reimbursement Rate is $.54 and $.27 for members of committees, commissions & units as indicated below)

Upon the recommendation of the Budget/Finance Committee of Council on November 10, 2010, and subsequently upheld at the March 11, 2015, meeting of Council, the mileage reimbursement for committees, commissions, and unit members was reduced as follows:

“…the budget reduces the amount of mileage for persons attending committee meetings. The committee discussed either zero or 14 cents (the charitable rate) rather than the IRS rate of 50 cents per mile. It was decided to offer half the IRS rate. It was MSC to create an exception and pay the full IRS rate for the moderator and vice moderator and half the IRS rate for all others.”
