At its next regular meeting on Friday, January 17th, the San Francisco Ethics Commission will consider and possibly act on a set of proposed changes to the regulations supporting Article III, Chapter I of the Campaign and Governmental Conduct Code.
The proposed changes would require electronic filing of the Form 700 Statement of Economic Interests by all persons required to file that form. Currently, all elected officials, board and commission members, and department heads file the Form 700 electronically, but City employees who file the form do so in paper format. The proposed changes would mandate universal electronic filing by employee filers and would create procedures for the administration of electronic filing.
This 10-day notice is provided under Charter Sec. 4.104 to encourage public comment on the proposals in advance of the Commission’s next meeting.
The Commission invites all input on the proposed regulations. Written public comment received by 9:00 a.m. on Monday, January 13th, will be included in the Commission’s packet of meeting materials for its January 17th meeting. Opportunity for public comment will also be provided during the Commission’s meeting.
Staff welcomes written comments on the proposed changes, which can be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or via regular mail to San Francisco Ethics Commission, 25 Van Ness Avenue, Suite 220, San Francisco, CA 94102.
