Trenton Ethics Board Establishes Code of Ethics
Trenton’s recently established ethics board passed the city’s first code of ethics last week. The long-awaited code outlines behavioral guidelines for elected officials, city employees, and representatives serving on city boards. Included are provisions regarding conflicts of interest, receipt of gifts, and financial disclosure.
Additionally, the code permits the ethics board to investigate possible ethics violations.
The code will go to the state Department of Community Affairs before it is enacted and added to the code book.
