The success of a government depends a great deal on the support of its citizens. That support, in turn, can hinge on the public’s trust that those in power will act fairly, responsibly, transparently and honestly. To earn that trust, elected officials and public employees must carry out their functions ethically and without any appearance of impropriety.
To ensure that all representatives of Miami-Dade County government understand the basis of ethical standards, the Board of County Commissioners approved an ordinance requiring that each employee undertake ethics training that includes a review of the Conflict of Interest and Code of Ethics Ordinance and Florida’s Public Records Law. This training program is intended to fulfill that requirement and promote a better understanding of the importance of ethics in public service.
