(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Salt Lake County officials are parking their county-owned vehicles.

Mayor Nancy Workman is turning in her county-owned S-U-V and she has ordered her staffers to do the same. Staffers will also give up their vehicle allowances while the mayor figures out if they are needed.

Last week, the county's chief financial officer resigned following reports he used his county-owned vehicle for personal trips to Lake Powell.

District Attorney David Yocom says he's received two formal complaints this week. He says he's now reviewing the details of the use of county-provided vehicles by elected and appointed officials, along with gas purchases on county credit cards.

He says he's also planning to turn in his county-owned vehicle.
