Proposed Mileage Reimbursement Policy

The Aston Public Library Board of Trustees are considering a policy change to add the following policy to the Library’s Policy Manual-

Mileage Reimbursement

The Internal Revenue Service standard business mileage rate may be reimbursed when an employee travels on library business in his or her own vehicle.  To be reimbursable, travel must be approved by the Director.

The exact mileage traveled must be included in the request for reimbursement.

For travel to and from the home of the employee, the mileage subject to reimbursement is computed by first subtracting the distance between the home and the Library.  

For example, if an employee travels from home to a meeting and then to the Library, the Library will reimburse the employee for the total mileage of the trip minus the distance from home to the Library.

This change will be up for vote at the May 19th 7PM Board of Trustees meeting here at the library.  The meeting is open to the public.  Public comments may be made by commenting on this post or using the “Contact Us” link on this site.
