Title
County Counsel recommending the Board review and approve revised conflict of interest codes received from local public entities within the county.
Body
Fiscal Impact/Change to Net County Cost
There is no fiscal impact.

Background
A number of local public agencies have submitted their revised and updated conflict of interest codes to the County for review and approval. These public entities are:

1. Buckeye Union SD
2. El Dorado County Office of Education
3. El Dorado County RCD
4. El Dorado Hills County Water District
5. El Dorado Hills CSD
6. Georgetown Divide PUD
7. Georgetown Divide RCD
8. Grizzly Flats CSD
9. Hickok Road CSD
10. Indian Diggings SD
11. Knolls Property Owners CSD
12. Lake Tahoe CCD
13. Mother Lode Union SD
14. Pollock Pines Elementary SD
15. Silver Fork Elementary SD

County Counsel’s Office has reviewed the updated conflict of interest codes submitted by the agencies listed above, and finds that they are in accordance with state law, and recommends that the Board approve the revised codes as submitted. The Board’s approval makes the updated codes legally effective. Staff will transmit a record of the Board’s approval to the local public agencies for their records.

Reason for Recommendation
Every two years, local public entities operating within the county must review their conflict of interest codes and determine whether changes should be made in order to bring them up to date. Under state law, the Board of Supervisors is the “code reviewing body” and must review and approve the local public entities’ revised conflict of interest codes. County Counsel’s Office has reviewed the updated and revised conflict of interest codes submitted to the county by local government agencies within the county, and finds that they are in conformance with the Political Reform Act.
