Our Code

We strive to be honest and transparent, and recognize the need for your confidence and trust in all that we do for you. Those who hold public office or are employed by the town may occasionally have conflicts arise between their public duty and their personal and/or financial and/or business interests.

Our Code of Ethics outlines standards and guidelines of ethical conduct for town officials and employees to adhere to, including

  • establishing an Ethics Commission
  • identifying mandatory disclosures
  • providing for sanctions, remedies and penalties for violations of this code
  • setting forth standards of ethical conduct
