BUFFALO, NY - Anyone seeing evidence of waste, fraud or mismanagement in city government is encouraged to call a new hotline set up by Buffalo Comptroller Mark Schroeder's office.
You can call the new Watchdog Hotline at 851-8779 or email www.city-buffalo.com/watchdog to anonymously report wrongdoing.
"Citizens and city employees who see their tax dollars being wasted or stolen can use the Watchdog Hotline to alert our office," said Schroeder in a statement released Friday. "They don't have to give their name, but they should provide as many details as possible to help our auditors begin an investigation.
"Whether it's quarters from a parking meter, or a sophisticated embezzlement scheme, it's all taxpayer money and we need to know about it. Once we get the information, our auditors will step in to restore the public trust."
