Commission on Ethics & Public Trust
The Ethics Commission was created in 1996 as a result of a citizens' vote to amend the Home Rule charter. It is an independent agency with advisory and quasi-judicial powers. It is composed of five members, each serving staggered terms of four years at a time. Learn more about the agency, its mission and its jurisdiction.
