City Officials, including the mayor, city clerk, eight aldermen, department heads and the appointed members of the planning and zoning board, must adhere to certain ethical standards as prescribed in the City's Ethics Code.

For example, there are disclosure requirements to disclose private financial or other interests in matters which may affect the City, as well as guidelines as it relates to local campaign fundraising. The Political Activities section of the code limits officials from accepting political contributions from any city contractor or vendor that has done business with the City, meaning any combination of sales, contracts, leases, or purchases to, from, or with the City in excess of one thousand ($1,000) within the current or any of the preceding four years.

To promote transparency, the City provides a list of contractors and vendors that have received +$1,000 in payment for their services under the terms of the guidelines. These lists are produced from reports generated in the current year and any of the prior four years.

Vendors Receiving Annual Payments of Over $1,000 for Services

The Code of Ethics also imposes contribution restrictions on certain subcontractors as well as City appointees and those individuals and entities that have recently done or are seeking to do business with the City in matters that are not captured in these vendor reports.
