Council President Marilyn J. Praisner applauds the new Waste and Fraud Hotline that the County began operating this week to prevent and detect fraud, waste and abuse in County government. The Hotline, which grew out of an initiative of the Council’s Management and Fiscal Policy Committee in consultation with the Inspector General’s Office and the Department of Finance, allows County employees and contractors to anonymously report improper or illegal activities. The Hotline will be overseen by the County’s Office of Inspector General.
“I am pleased to hear the Waste and Fraud Hotline is up and running. I know the Council wants to assure that County government is accountable to our taxpayers, and that they are confident that their tax dollars are well spent,” said Praisner.
