At its regular meeting on Monday, June 14, 2010 at 5:30 p.m. in Room 408 City Hall, the San Francisco Ethics Commission will consider possible amendments to its regulations regarding the enforcement of the Sunshine Ordinance and regarding the Government Ethics Ordinance (“GEO”) (San Francisco Campaign and Governmental Conduct Code section 3.200 et seq.).
The draft regulations related to the Sunshine Ordinance regulations cover the procedures for handling complaints alleging violations of the Sunshine Ordinance, filing briefs and presenting arguments at hearings before the Ethics Commission, and applying penalties for willful violations and warning letters for non-willful violations.
In addition, the Commission will consider possible amendments to regulations to section 3.234 of the GEO, to conform regulations to recent changes in the ordinance governing post-employment restrictions. Among other things, that legislation amended section 3.234 to extend the one-year restriction on communicating with one's former department to employees and officers who have transferred departments within the City.
The proposed amendments, along with respective staff reports, will be available from the Commission office and on its website when the agenda for the meeting is available on Thursday, June 10, 2010.
