BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — An employee from the Erie County Clerk’s Office has been suspended, sources told News 4 on Tuesday.
The suspension comes following a second comptroller report was released in July, which showed around $101,000 missing from the clerk’s office. That report examined most of 2022 and the first six months of 2023.
News 4 was not told the name of the employee, or if the suspension is in connection to the audit.
Both Erie County Clerk Mickey Kearns’ office as well as Erie County comptroller Kevin Hardwick declined to comment. The clerk’s office cited the ongoing investigation and that it involved a personnel matter.
The Buffalo News first reported this story.
