The Department of Law website provides the Executive Branch Ethics. All Board members should be familiar with the executive branch ethics and are asked to complete the Self-Guided Ethics training power point presentation.

Board Meetings

The Board meets a minimum of two times a year and offers a public comment period at each meeting. The Board has formed four (4) standing committees to put the skills and talents of your board members to the best possible use and make for a more nimble board.
