Title
Creating Section 2.37 of the Madison General Ordinances to authorize the Common Council to adopt rules of conduct for alderpersons.
Body
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:   Chapter 2 of the Madison General Ordinances adopts rules for the conduct of meetings of the Common Council.  The City's Code of Ethics, Sec. 3.35, MGO, and other City ordinances and state laws may regulate activities of alderpersons.  But gaps exist in the application of other rules of conduct that may apply to City employees but not to alderpersons (e.g., some Mayoral Administrative Procedure Memoranda).  This ordinance allows the Council to adopt, by subsequent resolution, rules of conduct for alderpersons that may include the application of Mayoral APM to alders.
