New cash handling guideline are set to be reviewed by city council in an attempt to avoid another $1-million theft.
An employee was fired from his job in June in connection with suspected fraud that spanned over a period of nine years.
Councillors will take a look at the new rules on Monday which will include among other things, that all cash payments be collected at a central location. When that isn’t possible, two employees should be present.
If approved, the city will use the guidelines to create a cash-handling policy by the end of 2013.
As for the suspected fraud, Hamilton Police say they’re still investigating and no charges have been laid.
