Conflict of Interest Policy
The Political Reform Act, Government Code Section 81000, et seq., requires state and local government agencies to adopt and promulgate conflict of interest codes. The Fair Political Practices Commission has adopted a regulation, 2 Cal. Code of Regs. Section 18730, which contains the terms of a standard conflict of interest code. It can be incorporated by reference and may be amended by the Fair Political Practices Commission after public notice and hearings to conform to amendments in the Political Reform Act. Therefore, the terms of 2 Cal. Code of Regs. Section 18730 and any amendments to it duly adopted by the Fair Political Practices Commission are hereby incorporated by reference and, along with the Appendix of Designated Positions and Disclosure Categories set forth below, constitute the conflict of interest code of Meeks Bay Fire Protection District. This conflict of interest code supersedes all prior codes, which are hereby rescinded.
Designated employees shall file statements of economic interests with Meeks Bay Fire Protection District. Statements are public records and will be made available for public inspection and reproduction.
