BOARD OF ETHICS
The Board of Ethics is a five-member board appointed by the Mayor, approved by the Assembly, and staffed by the Municipal Clerk. The duties of the Board of Ethics are derived from the Municipal Code of Ethics (AMC 1.15). The purpose of the Ethics Code is to set clear and reasonable standards for public officials and employees of the Municipality. The Board of Ethics promotes an understanding of these standards by providing advisory opinions, investigating notifications of potential violation, resolving potential conflicts, reviewing disclosure forms, and developing Ethics Training. The Board of Ethics holds regular meetings monthly and special meetings as needed. In March 2017, the Anchorage Assembly approved an ordinance repealing and reenacting the Municipal Code of Ethics which became effective immediately.
Regular Board of Ethics Meetings are held from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. the third Wednesday of the month. Upcomping meetings dates are:
- September 15, 2021
- October 20, 2021
- November 17, 2021
- December 15, 2021
Details for board meeting can be found on the Municipal Boards and Commissions Calendar under the corresponding date.
