The City Ethics Committee will discuss raising the penalty for ethics violations by city officials. It will raise the fine from $500 per violation to a minimum of $500 and a maximum of $2500.
In addition, the committee's agenda includes Brenda Konkel's letter to the panel, which makes a variety of suggestions about updating the ethics code and asks the committee to look into the mayor's bike trip in Europe, which Konkel alleges violates a prohibition on gifts (meals, trips etc.) from lobbyists to city employees. The city attorney responded to Konkel's letter.
