The Ethics Committee is scheduled to issue its report at the Commission meeting Monday night. Think these items will be on it?

* Prohibit county employees from serving in elected office.

* Require elected officials or employees to fully disclose conflicts of interest and to recuse themselves from any discussion or voting.

* Put the same conflict of interest requirements in place for an elected official or employee who is responsible for administrative action on an issue.

* Prohibit elected officials or employees from supervising or causing the employment, appointment, promotion or transfer of a relative to a county job.

* Require all Commission meetings to be carried by cable companies and streamed on the internet.

* Require all County Commissioners to have email addresses published on the County web site.

Feel free to add your own in the comments...(you can do it anonymously in case one of the Commissioners knows where you live...Hey...Just kidding Benny and Copper and Mike...Just Kidding!)
