The City of Lincoln Conflict of Interest Code
Adopted by the City of Lincoln City Council - Resolution No. 2018-142
Effective: July 10, 2018
The California Political Reform Act, (Gov. Code Sections 81000-91014) requires many local public officials and employees to file public, personal financial disclosure reports known as Statements of Economic Interests - Form 700.
Under the Act, cities are required to adopt and implement a separate Conflict of Interest Code. Designated Employees, Commissioners, and Elected Officials must file Statements of Economic Interests. The City Clerk, as Filing Officer, administers the Conflict of Interest Code at the local level and notifies each designated employee and commissioner of his or her filing obligation. Officials designated in the Conflict of Interest Code are required to file an Assuming Office Statement when they assume a designated position, an Annual Statement each year and a Leaving Office Statement within thirty days of resignation or termination. Additionally, candidates for elected positions are required to file a Candidate statement. Each type of statement has a specified "reporting period." Filers must sign the Form 700 under penalty of perjury. Once filed, the form is a public document and must be made available to the public upon request.
The City Council are elected officers identified in Government Code Section 87200 and file statements of economic interests with the City Clerk's office. Copies of the statements of economic interests filed by these elected officers may be obtained by clicking on the links below or on the FPPC's website at http://www.fppc.ca.gov .
