The Fraud Hotline allows anyone to report suspected acts of financial wrong doing by employees of, or within, the Cleveland Town government. Submit information regarding suspected wrong doing (fraud or waste) at any time using the form below. You have the option to remain completely anonymous or you may request that someone from the Audit Committee follow up with you. The information you provide is confidential and anonymous and will go directly to the Cleveland Town Audit Committee (a committee led by two Town Council Members).
Cleveland Town Fraud Hotline Policy
The Cleveland Town Fraud Hotline provides an avenue for citizens, including public employees and contractors, to report improper governmental activities including:
FILING A COMPLAINT
Complaints should be submitted in writing using the attached form. Complainants should also submit any evidence that supports the complaint. Essential information includes specifics on “who, what, where, when, as well as any other details that may be important. Due to limited resources Cleveland Town is unable to accept complaints that are not supported by evidence. At a minimum, please use the form as a guide to ensure the necessary information is provided. Submit complaints via the following methods:
US MAIL: CLEVELAND TOWN, ATTN: AUDIT COMMITTEE, PO BOX 325, CLEVELAND, UTAH 84518
ENTITY PROCESSING OF A HOTLINE COMPLAINT
Utah Code 67-21-3 prohibits public employers from taking adverse action against their employees for reporting government waste or violations of law in a good faith, to the appropriate authorities. A public entity employee, public body employee, legislative employee, or judicial employee, is presumed to have communicated in good faith if they have given written notice or otherwise formally communicated the conduct to the entity (see Utah Code 67-21-3 (1)(b)(iv)(A) for more information).
The identity of the complainant is considered protected information under the Utah Government Records Access Management Act (GRAMA) and will be kept confidential if requested by the complainant. (See Utah Code Section 67-3-1 (15)).
Complaints may be submitted anonymously to the Hotline. However, it is preferable that the complainant provide their name and contact information to allow for follow-up questions and reporting the results back to the complainant. Whistleblower protections do not apply to anonymous complaints.
