Statement of Economic Interests (Form 700)
The California Political Reform Act requires every local government agency to adopt a Conflict of Interest Code (“COI Code”). The COI Code designates positions within the City required to file Statements of Economic Interests and assigns disclosure categories specifying the types of financial interests to be reported. Further, the Political Reform Act contains specific provisions setting forth any circumstances under which designated positions or categories of designated positions must disqualify themselves from making, participating in the making, or using their official position to influence the making of any decision.
Certain officials, including the Mayor, members of the City Council, candidates for City offices, members of the Planning Commission, City Manager, City Attorney, and City Treasurer are statutorily required to file disclosure statements pursuant to Government Code Section 87200 (commonly known as “87200 filers”). The City’s COI Code and list of designated positions supplements these statutory requirements by including employees, consultants, and members of City advisory bodies who are not 87200 filers.

The filing of Statements of Economic Interest forms are managed through the Office of the City Clerk.
