Tallahassee Commissioners Adopt Stricter Gifts Laws for City Officials
The city commission adopted changes to Tallahassee’s ethics rules, taking aim at improper interactions between elected officials and those seeking official action.
Changes to the ordinance include a ban on city officials soliciting gifts from vendors and lobbyists and a prohibition on city officials accepting gifts totaling more than $100 in a calendar year.
These changes are effective upon final passage.
