Buffalo, NY (WBEN) The Erie County DA's office says it will have its Special Investigations and Prosecutions (SIP) Bureau look into the Erie County Water Authority. This after a scalding report by the state's Authorities Bureau office.

Flynn says the SIP bureau investigates matters of public integrity.  The prosecutors will be contacting the Authorities Budget Office and are opening an investigation into this matter.

No one from the Authorities Budget Office has contacted the District Attorney’s Office alleging that any crimes have been committed

The ABO's report found a lack of transparency and a lack of timely information for board members to go over before deciding on any major issues such as pay issues and rate hikes.
