Annual Form 700 Filings Due April 3, 2017

Public economic interest filings by City officers and designated employees support transparent and accountable local government.

It’s time for City officers and designated employees to file their Annual Statement of Economic Interests (Form 700). These public filings help officials and employees monitor their financial interests, identify when those interests might conflict with their government actions, and take steps to avoid conflicts of interests. City officers and designated employees are required to file the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) Form 700 (covering the period January 1 to December 31, 2016) with their filing officers by Monday, April 3rd 2017. Please note that there is no provision in state law to extend the filing deadlines.

The following sections summarize the filing requirements and deadlines for:
