Pueblo City Council Working On Ethics Code
PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) — The Pueblo City Council is considering a new ethics code after questions were raised over potential conflicts of interest.
The meeting on Monday is being held to consider ethics codes of other cities.
In October, the council changed its ethics code, amending it to allow Councilman Steve Nawrocki and Councilwoman Sandy Daff to vote on city budget questions.
That decision cleared up questions that plagued Nawrocki since his election in 2009 and Daff this year. The former code said council members could not vote on matters that directly affected their employers or businesses.
Nawrocki is executive director of the Senior Resources Development Agency, which receives city funding each year, and Daff is director of the Pueblo Human Relations Commission, which also receives city support.
