Town Conflict of Interest Codes
Town Resolution No.3325-16
Statement of Economic Interests (Form 700)
Every elected official who makes or influences governmental decisions is required to submit a Statement of Economic Interests, also known as the Form 700. 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 of potential conflicts of interest so the official can abstain from making or participating in governmental decisions that are deemed conflicts of interest.
Statements of Economic Interests filed by the Windsor Town Council may be found on the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) website. The FPPC is required to post on its website all statements of economic interests required to be filed with the Commission on or after January 1, 2010, by elected officers in their elected capacity.
