Disclosure and Ethics

The Political Reform Act of 1974 requires public officials to disclose assets and income that may be materially affected by their official actions. The Act requires governmental agencies to ensure that their public officials (council, board, and commission members, employees, and consultants) disclose their interests on or before the statutory deadlines. The City Clerk is the Official Filing Officer for the City of Rohnert Park. The City Clerk is responsible for the collection, maintenance, and protection of filing and disclosure documents. Additionally, the City Clerk is responsible for ensuring public access to these materials as prescribed by the California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC).

 

City Councilmembers are elected officers identified in Government Code section 87200 and are required to file Statements of Economic Interest forms (Form 700) with the City Clerk's Office. Copies of the statements filed by the City Council may be obtained by visiting the webpage of the Fair Political Practices Commission .  Copies of the statements filed by the City Council, City commission, committees, and boards, City employees, and consultants can also be obtained by contacting the  City Clerk’s Office .

 

In addition, State law requires the filing of campaign disclosure statements by local candidates for elective office, elected officeholders, and committees supporting or opposing local candidates or ballot measures.
