RECOMMENDATION:

Adopt Resolution No. 2014-_, accepting the Local Agency Biennial Notice.

BACKGROUND/DISCUSSION:

Cities are required to amend their Conflict of Interest Codes "when change is necessitated by changed circumstances, including the creation of new positions" that require designation (Ca.Gov. Code section 87306). There have been no additions or deletions of designated positions in the City’s Conflict of Interest Code since the last Biennial Notice was approved by the City Council in 2012.

In addition, the California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) requests that each city have its City Council accept, as filed, a Local Biennial Notice every two years on or before October 1. In order to comply with that requirement, the City has completed the Local Biennial Notice, a copy of which is attached to the proposed as Exhibit B.

FISCAL IMPACT:

None.
