The Pierce County Ethics Commission will not be meeting during the month of April due to the Governor’s Proclamation. See Governor’s Proclamation 20-28 (Open Public Meetings act and Public Records Act) (issued March 24, 2020).
The proclamation temporarily suspends the ability of an agency to take “action” on matters at a meeting unless they are: (1) matters necessary and routine, or (2) necessary to respond to the outbreak and current public health emergency.
PCC 3.12.070(I), requires that the Commission meet as frequently as “it deems necessary.” Given the Governor’s Proclamation, and that there is currently no necessary business, the meeting is set over to May 13.
The public is still welcome to engage the Commission for all prescribed activities via the channels described on the web page.
Any person with knowledge of a Pierce County Ethics Code violation by a county employee, or any person dealing with Pierce County government, may file a complaint with the Pierce County Ethics Commission. It is the Commission's duty to examine questionable behavior, as defined by the Pierce County Ethics Code, and to resolve complaints. Pierce County's Ethics Commission exists as a non-biased resource for the community and can provide information and solutions.
Regularly scheduled meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month (except holidays) at 4:30 p.m. at the Lakewood Community Center (Room 103), 9112 Lakewood Drive SW #121, Lakewood, WA 98499 Google Map . Lakewood Community Center (253) 798-4176
