City Vehicle Policies

The City of Burbank’s take home vehicle assignments list (not including the fire department)

The following is the text from the Use of City Vehicles Policy regarding departments that are exempt from the policy:


This Administrative Procedure covers the use of City vehicles and equipment. Police and Fire Department vehicle and equipment purchases are not required to follow this Administrative Procedure, but may do so at the discretion of their department head. The City is required to purchase numerous vehicles and equipment for its employees as a means to travel around the City, to and from City facilities, to visit residents and businesses in the City. Employees also use City vehicles and equipment to travel to other cities to attend meetings, training, etc., as part of their employment. As a result, a policy is required to help define who will use the vehicles and equipment, and to what extent they may be used. Since there are numerous employees that utilize vehicles and equipment for a wide variety of purposes, it is very difficult to set out a strict guideline with exact requirements. Therefore, this procedure establishes broad guidelines to follow and at the same time defines specific parameters.

The City does pay for the fuel for City vehicles taken home by the worker.
