YONKERS, NY – January 30, 2012 — As part of an on-going effort to better detect and deter fraud, waste and abuse in government, Mayor Mike Spano and Inspector General (IG) Dan Schorr have launched a new online site today, www.YonkersIGTips.com, for Yonkers residents to anonymously post any information and tips as it relates to the city government.
“This is an important resource that enables residents to provide information to the Inspector General should they become aware of any wasteful or abusive conduct that undermines the integrity of government,” advised Mayor Spano.
In the past, the Inspector General’s office asserts it has received phone calls, emails or letters from residents providing information that has led to some important investigations. IG Schorr was not specific. It is claimed the new page will act as an avenue for the IG’s office to learn of any suspicious activity.
“The focus of the Department is to foster honest and efficient governmental administration,” said Inspector General Schorr. “This new online initiative will help achieve that objective and better serve the people of Yonkers.”
