This book contains reports on over sixty years of activity by the Board of Ethics of the Town of Greenwich, Connecticut. The reports cover decisions on complaints, advisory opinions and other actions. After an introduction briefly describes the history of the Board, the actions of the Board are reported on annually. Each report contains a summary of facts, a description of the issues presented, an explanation of the Board's action and rationale and cross references to similar situations the Board has dealt with. The book contains a topical index, which allows readers to find decisions and opinions that deal with various subjects, such as qtrade shows, q qattorneysq or qnon-profits.q As one of the oldest and largest towns in the United States, Greenwich has faced many challenges and has emerged as one of its most admired communities. Known today for its enviable tax base and many prominent residents, it shares with many New England communities a history of active citizen participation in local government and is recognized as one of the strongest and most active political units in the country. The Town has one of the world's largest legislative bodies and relies heavily on unpaid volunteers, serving on various boards, commissions and agencies, to supervise and conduct many of its most important activities, such as planning and zoning, schools, social services, parks, libraries and various public works and infrastructure projects. The attention the Town has given to the integrity of its officials has been a major contributor to the development of its unique governmental structure and strong economic base, yet the many opportunities for civic involvement have also created many opportunities for conflicts of interest to arise. These reports show how Greenwich has responded to these challenges over the years, including procedures to balance the need for internal ethics controls against due process, freedom of speech and other rights of public officials and the need for the public to have assurances that governmental actions are motivated by public rather than private concerns. Unique ethical issues faced by attorneys, engineers, architects, health care workers and other professionals when operating in the public sector are also addressed.Date: 11/6/06 Topics: Exerting Influence; RTM Members; Town Employees; Financial Interests; Complaints; Advisory Opinions ... a committee of the Representative Town Meeting (a€œRTMa€) and several other members sent a letter to the Board seeking guidance ... of the committeea#39;s work involves reviewing, discussing, and voting on the departmenta#39;s budget and nominations for the Board of Social Services.
