Sonoma County employees, vendors and the public will soon have a way to anonymously report instances of fraud, waste or abuse in county government.
The Board of Supervisors has approved a proposal from the county's auditor-controller-treasurer-tax collector that creates multiple ways to make anonymous reports.
"The County of Sonoma is committed to accountability, transparency, fairness, and the prudent use of public funds," said Erick Roeser, Sonoma County auditor-controller-treasurer-tax collector. "One of my goals is to foster and maintain a work environment based on the principle of financial integrity and the whistleblower hotline is an important tool in achieving this goal."
