On June 22, 2012, City Council passed Bill 40 (2012), FD1. The purpose of Bill 40 is to expand ethics training, currently required for all city supervisors, manager, board and commission members and elected officers, to be required for all city personnel. All city personnel should receive the training as described below:
Officers or employees currently employed on the effective date of the bill, June 22, 2012, who have not previously received ethics training should receive training within two years of that date.
Officers or employees elected, appointed, or hired after the effective date of the bill, June 22, 2012, should receive ethics training within six months of the election, appointment, or hiring date of the officer or employee.
