Section 2-405 Notification of Contract Violations.

It shall be the duty of every officer and person in the employ or service of the City, when it shall come to such officer's or person's knowledge that any contract or agreement with the City, or with any officer or department thereof, or relating to the business of any office, has been or is about to be violated, forthwith to report to the Mayor all the facts and information within such officer's or person's possession concerning such matter. A willful failure so to do shall be sufficient cause for the removal of such officer or employee. The Mayor shall give a certificate on demand to any person reporting such facts and information that such person has done so, and such certificate shall be evidence in exoneration from a charge of neglect of duty in that respect.
