Title

Adopt City Council Resolution Amending the City of Fort Bragg Conflict of Interest Code

 

Summary

 

Title 2, Division 6, of the California Code of Regulations (CCR) sets forth the State's Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) requirements for public agencies to establish a Conflict of Interest Code. The FPPC requires agencies to review their Conflict of Interest Code biennially during even-numbered years and to make any necessary changes/updates. The FPPC has notified the City that the completed biennial notice must be submitted to the City Council no later than October 3, 2022.

 

On January 24, 2022, Council reviewed the Conflict of Interest Code and adopted Resolution 4502-2022. Since that time, changes to the list of designated employees have been made so the resolution needs to be updated. The FPPC's regulations regarding adopting and amending conflict of interest codes state:

 

When determining whether to amend, an agency should carefully review its current conflict of interest code and consider the following:

 

Is the current code more than five years old?

Have there been any substantial changes to the agency's organizational structure since the current code was adopted?

Have any positions been eliminated or renamed since the current code was adopted?

Have any new positions been added since the current code was adopted?

Have there been any substantial changes in duties or responsibilities for any positions since the current code was adopted?

If an agency answers “yes” to any of the above questions, most likely its conflict of interest code will need to be amended.

 

Since Resolution 4502-2022 was adopted, the following position has been added: Assistant City Manager.

 

Since Resolution 4502-2022 was adopted, the following positions are no longer being filled: Assistant to the City Manager, Assistant Director - Public Works, Assistant Finance Director, Grant Manager.

 

Exhibit B to the Conflict of Interest Code resolution has been updated to reflect the above changes. Adoption of the resolution will fulfill FPPC requirements.
