1. It is necessary that all persons acting in the public service not only maintain high standards of ethical conduct in their transaction of public business but that such standards be clearly defined and known to the public, as well as to the persons acting in public service. In recognition of this goal, there is hereby established a Code of Ethics for public officials, elected and appointed, and for top level City employees. The purpose of this Code is to establish ethical standards of conduct for such officials and City employees by setting forth those acts or actions that are incompatible with the best interests of the City and by directing disclosure by such persons of private, financial or other interests in matters affecting the City.

The City Manager, department heads and other employees designated by the Manager, except the City Attorney, shall annually file as a public record in the office of the City Clerk, a signed statement disclosing the following information:

A. A list of names of all business corporations, partnerships and other business enterprises or governmental agencies doing business with the City of North Saint Paul or located within the City of North Saint Paul:

(1) with which he or she has a financial interest, or

(2) with which he or she has a personal interest;

B. A list of the non-homestead real property located within the City of North Saint Paul in which he or she currently has a financial interest;

C. A list of the names and nature of business, of all corporations, partnerships and other business enterprises with which he or she has a financial interest and in which he or she knows one or more other persons covered by this Code of Ethics also having a financial interest in said enterprise. This list shall indicate the name or names of such other person or persons having such interest in said enterprise.

2. Each newly-hired manager or department head, except the City Attorney, shall within thirty (30) days of the hiring date and annually thereafter, file the disclosure statement required by this Section.

3. Material changes in financial interest or in positions held shall be disclosed by filing an amended disclosure statement within thirty (30) days after such interest is obtained or such changed position occurs.
