Boulder City Council considers ethics changes

BOULDER — The Boulder City Council is holding a public hearing on a new ethics code of conduct that seeks to clarify the expectations and prohibitions on elected officials and city employees.

The ordinance encourages disclosure of a broader range of personal connections than the previous code of conduct. Public officials who are found to be in violation of the code could be censured or even removed from office, depending on the severity of the violation.

According to the Boulder Daily Camera, the new ordinance was prompted by criticism of elected officials accused of voting for friends and political associates for volunteer board positions and for not disclosing some investments in their financial disclosures.
