Conflict of Interest – City Officers

Notification of Recusal

On January 1, 2019, a new recusal reporting law that amends Sec. 3.209 of the City’s Campaign & Governmental Conduct Code became operational.

Sec. 3.209 specifies recusal procedures for Commissioners who have a financial conflict of interest arising from pending matters, including public disclosure of the conflict and leaving the room during discussion, voting and any other disposition of the matter. Commissioners who must recuse themselves also must file a public disclosure form with the Ethics Commission within 15 days after the date of the meeting at which the recusal occurred or would have occurred. Commissioners must file the form even if the member did not attend the meeting that would have required their recusal.

More information and filing procedures are available below:
