I need an answer to a question regarding civil vs criminal law in regards to fraud and forgery.

Ok, here is the scenario. A city clerk forges information to a building permit that has been of file at City hall for well over a year. The fraud is committed to conflict with information a witness had already confirmed in a letter written by an expert in his field as a the County extension agent. Over time the clerk also altering an ordinance. The clerk also fabricated an ordinance for one specific resident. The victim spoke to the newly elected sheriff about the multiple counts of fraud committed by this city clerk. The sheriff indicated he wanted the victim to receive justice. He advised the victim that he personally warned the city clerk to remove the Cities webpage. This page contained the city council meeting minutes beginning in 2005. The sheriff then advises the victim  that he is powerless to intervene in a private issue.

My question;

  1. Is fraud a criminal or a civil offense when committed by a City employee?
  2. Who has the duty to bring criminal or civil charges against a city clerk who has committed fraud on behalf of another individual.
  3. Is there any reason to justify keeping this employee on the Cities playroll?
  4. Is it possible that the sheriff is conspiring to allow this city clerk to get away with committing fraud and forgery due to a conflict of interest?

in the circled area Value is handwritten $40,880 Fee $ is blank. The issue date at the top is 7-12-2004. Complainant had only noticed that this permit was invalid due to no Builders signature. Clearly Building Administrator Holland was intentionally negligent at least for his lack of oversight and pre-approval of issuance of this permit

  To my knowledge Cirinna was never reprimanded or as general procedure would require terminated for ethical and criminal violations. Mayor Scumbaito soon after resigned his position as Mayor of the City of Montrose. Mayor Pro Tem Jeff Junkins took the position at that time. Jeff Junkins is a co-worker of Mark Conlee at a local factory.
