WHEREAS, some appointments are formally approved by the Madison Common Council and many other appointments are not; and

 

WHEREAS, the City wants to be clear when such service on Outside Boards is undertaken in the employee’s or official’s role as an employee or official of the City of Madison, and thus falling within the exception set forth in Sec. 3.35(2)(b), MGO, part of the City’s Ethics Code; and

 

WHEREAS, the Common Council has previously approved such service by employees and elected officials by a ratifying resolution and it is now necessary to again approve such a resolution to reflect the current service of employees and elected officials on Outside Boards.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Common Council approves and ratifies service by employees and elected officials on Outside Boards as set forth in the attached Exhibit A - Amended, dated  September 8, 2020 January 21, 2021, and considers such service as being done on behalf of the City within Sec. 3.35(2)(b), MGO, and
