Chicago Board of Ethics Posts New Informational Brochures
The Chicago Board of Ethics recently posted two new publications on its website, both of which outline ethics restrictions for city officials.
The first addresses, among other things, general conflicts of interest, lobbying on behalf of others, financial interests in city contracts, financial disclosure requirements, gifts, revolving door provisions, and penalties for ethics violations.
The second addition is a publication delineating what city employees and officials may or may not do in terms of contracting with the city.
Both documents are intended to provide a basic understanding of ethics rules and are not deemed legal advice.
