Namely, the following circumstances were observed: 
Officials, who receive fuel, do not have service cars; 
Officials, who have neither their private cars nor service cars, receive fuel Concrete legitimate conditions are not envisaged for the estimation the limit of fuel for what the officials, who receive it, do not have to travel on business purposes; 

In some cases the officials, who travel to and from working place from other residential area, get the fuel, that means their transportation is funded from the budget;

Apart to that, the fuel limits are determined based on the respective decree of the municipality governor. However, in accordance to the law or normative acts of municipal councils, it is not within the competence of the governors to estimate fuel limits for the local governmental officials or servicemen. In accordance to the Article 24 Paragraph 3 of the Law of Georgia on Local Governance, a governor can carry out concrete authorities, which are not directly envisaged by the law, only based on the respective resolution of the municipal/city council.
