In the report, it reveals that between Oct. 2021 and Dec. 2022, the former employee allegedly bought 23 personal items on Amazon using the City’s account.

Although the employee allegedly paid with their own credit card, the unnamed employee did admit to avoiding state sales tax by using the City’s tax-exempt status.

The former employee was given account access to place and approve orders on the City’s behalf.

Investigators concluded MONSE supervisors were aware of these purchases. However, MONSE did say they plan on configuring the account settings to prevent similar actions in the future.
