Assembly Bill 2151
Beginning January 1, 2021, AB2151 requires local government agencies to post campaign statements and reports on their agency’s website, within 72 hours of each applicable filing deadline, if they are filed in paper format. If the final day of the 72-hour period is a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday, the period is extended to the next day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday. Before posting, the local filing officer shall redact the street name and building number of the persons or entity representatives listed on any statement, report, or document, or any bank account number required to be disclosed by the filer. Providing a link on the agency’s internet website to the statement, report, or other document satisfies this requirement. The reports and statements must remain on the agency’s website for at least 4 years.
Government Code Section 87200
Councilmembers are elected officials identified in Government Code Section 87200 and are required to disclose assets and income which may be materially affected by their official actions by filing Statements of Economic Interests (Form 700's) with the City Clerk's Office. The Form 700 provides transparency and ensures accountability in two ways:
- It provides necessary information to the public about an official's personal financial interests to ensure that officials are making decisions in the best interest of the public and not enhancing their personal finances
- It serves as a reminder to the public official to potential conflicts of interest so the official can abstain from making or participating in governmental decisions that are deemed conflicts of interest.
Copies of the Form 700's filed by the above elected officers may be obtained by visiting the offices of the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) or online:
|Fair Political Practices Commission
428 J Street, Suite 620
Sacramento, CA 95814
|Cloverdale City Clerk's Office
