Palm Beach County Commission Votes to Expand Ethics Commission
The Palm Beach County Commission voted in favor of a proposal to expand the county’s ethics commission from five members to seven. County Commissioner Priscilla Taylor pushed for the change, saying the commission needed more diversity.
The proposal will go before the committee responsible for drafting changes to the county code, and then back to the county commission for a final vote.
Independent community groups are responsible for selecting the ethics commission’s members.
