The California Political Reform Act requires certain state and local government officials to publicly disclose their private economic interests on the Form 700, Statement of Economic Interests, pursuant to the locally adopted Conflict of Interest Code. Additionally, it requires that all government employees disqualify themselves from participating in decisions in which they have a personal financial interest. The City's Conflict of Interest Code is updated every two years, as required by law. Read the current Conflict of Interest Code (PDF).
The Political Reform Act (Government Code sections 8100091014) requires most state and local government officials and employees to publicly disclose their personal assets and income. They also must disqualify themselves from participating in decisions which may affect their personal economic interests.
Statements of Economic Interests are public documents. Any member of the public may inspect and copy any statement. Forms must be available as soon as possible during the agency's regular business hours, but in any event not later than the second business day after the statement is received.

The Political Reform Act requires public officials to disclose their personal financial information so the public may review that information and be knowledgeable that the official is not using his/her decision making authority to affect his/her personal financial interests. The City Council file a Statement of Economic Interests Form 700 no later than April 1 of each year. Statements are also filed when the official takes office and/or leaves office. The filing of financial disclosure forms are managed through the Office of the City Clerk.
