City ethics panel meets to get organized prior to discussing complaint



Moore asked if any state laws outside the ordinance would bear on the way the board operates or deals with particular matters similar to the complaint.

“There are probably some state laws that may give you some guidance from the standpoint of how their agency does it,” Jordan replied. “I don’t know anything from the state law standpoint that would impact this ordinance and how it would impact this ordinance, but we can definitely look at that and certainly gather that information for you.”

During the meeting, the board also established City Clerk Bo Danuser to be in charge of taking minutes for every meeting.

The ethics board is scheduled to next meet at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 4 in the City Hall chambers to review the pending ethics complaint.

“We will review the complaint at the next meeting and ... determine if there are any allegations within the complaint that are found to be within the ordinance and we will move forward with the investigation,” Jordan said. “The investigation has to be completed within 60 days and then they have seven days after that to forward a recommendation to the City Council for the mayor and council, but the ordinance does state that failure to comply within 60 days would not invalidate the action of the board or action of the subsequent action of the City Council if they decided to take action. Anytime there are complaints filed against an elected or appointed official, we would like to move those along as best as we can, but don’t want to sacrifice thoroughness and get ahead of ourselves.”
