Citizens willing to volunteer their time are asked to consider serving on Rockville's new Ethics Commission. Volunteers need to be a resident of the city, and fill out a disclosure form. With elections, development and other matters becoming far more complicated than in Rockville's past, this is certainly a vital and worthy service to consider on behalf of your neighbors.
The newly-chartered commission will advise the Mayor and Council, assist in creation and implementation of ethics policy, and handle ethics complaints when those guidelines are violated.
The commission has openings for five members. One of the initial members will serve a one-year term, two members will serve for two years, and two members will serve for three years. Eventually all members will serve three-year terms.
The deadline to apply is March 14.
To apply, candidates should complete the Statement of Financial Interests and submit it along with the Expression of Interest Form, which can be found on this page.
