Oooh, this is just too good to ignore...

According to the Mountain Express, "Buncombe County Buncombe County government is announcing a new “Whistleblower Hotline,” a place for citizens to report suspected incidents of “fraud, theft, illegal or unethical behavior” by county employees. The toll-free number is (866) 908-7236.

The hotline is managed by a third-party network, and allows residents and county employees to make their reports anonymously. Despite the obvious temptation it poses, the County anticipates that the service will be lightly used."

Yeah, lightly used. They have one call already. I called about the meetings commissioners had with Progress Energy leading to the leasing of 78 acres of land for $1 per year.

Let's make those lines light up folks!
