The Clarion-Ledger, 1/6/9

The city of Jackson has increased oversight for its gasoline credit cards and has begun to reduce questionable purchases, city officials told the Jackson City Council on Monday.

But the progress report on the Fuelman discount gas program also shows the city still has not gained complete control over the cards.

“I think we’re taking baby steps to get the problem resolved,” Councilman Jeff Weill said.

Monday’s update follows weeks of public scrutiny into the Fuelman program.

Jackson uses Fuelman to fill up city-owned and city-operated vehicles. The service gives the city a 30-cent-per-gallon discount at participating stations.
