Norwalk, OH: No one in trouble for SSN debacle

Scott Seitz reports:

Norwalk officials reported Monday no one will face discipline involving the release of residents’ Social Security numbers during a postcard mailing last week.

The cards originally were mailed to provide residents access to 2013 Norwalk municipal income tax forms.

Diane Eschen, finance director, said the city provided Shamrock, the firm which processed the postcards, information including the Social Security numbers.

Eschen said the company assumed the numbers were city file or account numbers and printed them on the card that was mailed, not realizing they were Social Security numbers.
