The Board of Ethics (PAMC Chapter 2.78) shall be composed of members who are residents of the city, and represent a diverse set of backgrounds and interests. At least one member shall be a former judicial officer or have expertise in ethics acquired through education or experience. At least one other member shall have experience in municipal government. City employees are not eligible. Board members shall serve without compensation for two-year terms.
After reviewing applications, considering additional information, and conducting interviews as the City Council deems appropriate, the City Council, by vote of supermajority, may approve those applicants eligible to serve on the board. These applicants will then make up a pool of eligible members. Should an ethics complaint come forward, three members will be selected from the pool to serve as the Ethics Board for that particular complaint.
The board's meetings shall be open to the public in accordance with the Open Public Meetings Act.
