Vacancy on County Ethics Advisory Board

Thursday, July 1, 2010
Tompkins County invites county residents to apply to fill a vacancy on the County's Ethics Advisory Board.

The County seeks applicants of good reputation and character who are familiar with the local community and possess diverse perspectives and expertise appropriate to the review of ethical matters. Members are appointed by the County Legislature and serve four-year terms without compensation.

Under provisions of the County Code of Ethics, the five-member board meets at least once a year and at other times, as convened by the Chair. Among its responsibilities, the board takes testimony and receives complaints concerning alleged unethical practices, which may be submitted by any County employee or official. It also reviews financial disclosure statements filed by County officials and recommends the manner in which any conflicts of interest may be resolved.

Applications to fill this vacancy must be received by September 15, 2010; however, residents are encouraged to submit applications at any time for future consideration.

For additional information contact Cathy Covert, Clerk of the Legislature at 274-5434 or by e-mail at:
