The California Political Reform Act (Gov. Code Sections 81000-91014) requires many local public officials and employees to file public, personal financial disclosure reports known as Statements of Economic Interests - Form 700. Under the Act, cities are required to adopt and implement a separate Conflict of Interest Code. Designated Elected Officials, employees, and Commissioners must file Statements of Economic Interests. The designated filers and types of economic interests they must disclose are listed in the City of Woodland’s Conflict of Interest Code. The City's Conflict of Interest Code was last amended on December 4, 2018 by Resolution No. 7188.
The City Clerk, as the Filing Officer, administers the Conflict of Interest Code at the local level and notifies each designated employee and commissioner of his or her filing obligation. Officials designated in the Conflict of Interest Code are required to file an Assuming Office Statement when they assume a designated position and Annual Statement each year, and a Leaving Office Statement within thirty days of resignation or termination. Additionally, candidates for elected positions are required to file a Candidate statement. Each type of statement has a specified reporting period. Once filed, the form is a public document and must be made available to the public upon request.
The Mayor and Councilmembers are elected officers identified in Government Code Section 87200 and file Statements of Economic Interests with the City Clerk's Office. Copies of the Statement of Economic Interests filed by these elected officers are available by contacting the City Clerk's office or visiting the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) website: http://www.fppc.ca.gov/
