The issue is when these people use city owned equipment along with their personal hotspots/smart phones to bypass security we have in place to protect our network.

You need to step back and look at the overall picture then.
Your issue is that you want to protect your network.
Your problem is that employees are bypassing your security because you've locked them out of facebook (or whatever) via your proxy.
Simply put, you need to
1) remove restrictions on your internet gateway, which means YOU can control inbound hacking attacks.
2) publish some policy guidelines as to what can and can not be accessed, and get your users to agree/sign to the terms, and DO NOT block what your users want to access in their down time
3) "monitor" your internet connection, and send the appropriate warnings to the people violating your policy (via their manager). Offenders of "illegal" type content would be given more than a slap on the wrist.
4) don't concern yourself with people accessing gmail, facebook, neowin, WSJ, disney etc. I'd imagine people like firemen would have LOTS of downtime, so they need to occupy themselves somehow!
