The City’s Ethics Advisory panel voted today to recommend that the City Commission create a new Ethics Officer position. This position would be on the same level as the City Manager, City Attorney, City Auditor and the City Clerk and the responsibilities would be detailed in the Charter. This means that the position would have to be placed on the ballot by the City Commission and approved by the voters.
The vote was 5-2 and followed a spirited debate on the issue of ethics oversight.
