Tip line call is correct

Whether you call it an “ethics and efficiency hotline” or “tip line” – terms used in a new city hall report – many will be tempted to think of it as a “snitch line.” So we’re not sorry to hear city staff have looked at the idea of creating one and are recommending a thumbs down. It would cost $128,000 in the first year to create a tip line for city employees to report alleged fraud, waste and other wrongdoing within city hall, the report says. Opening it up to the public would cost even more.
It’s money that could be better spent elsewhere, on something that doesn’t run the risk of hurting morale at city hall. The city is already busy implementing what it calls “new initiatives to improve and support staff sharing ideas that create greater efficiencies, productivity and improved engagement.” Let’s see how these work before giving any more thought to a “snitch line.”
