Durango sets up whistleblower policy for staff, community

The Durango Herald: The city of Durango wants to make it easier for whistleblowers, both employees of the city and members of the public, to report concerns.

A new whistleblower policy was drafted in response to a massive fraud case involving the previous finance director who embezzled more than $700,000 over the course of 11 years. That resulted in a citation in the city’s 2019 audit report and prompted the city to rework some of its internal financial controls.

City councilors are scheduled to vote on the new policy Tuesday.
