PISCATAQUIS COUNTY, Maine — As the Piscataquis County commissioners ponder the economy and the possibility it may be no better in future years, they are weighing whether to ask the sheriff and chief deputy to use their own cars in 2011 rather than county-issued vehicles.
Commissioner Tom Lizotte said Tuesday that a budget advisory committee member had told the commissioners that the state had eliminated issuing vehicles to administrators at the Charleston Correctional Facility and wondered whether that could be done at the county level.
