Stipulations and Orders

The Ethics Commission resolves its enforcement actions in a variety of ways, including issuing enforcement orders following administrative hearings, negotiating the terms of stipulated settlements, and concluding minor cases through streamlined programs.

Administrative Enforcement Orders

In lieu of settling an enforcement matter, a respondent may elect to proceed to an administrative hearing for a determination regarding violations of the City's campaign, lobbying, or ethics laws. Following the hearing, the Commission may issue an Administrative Enforcement Order requiring the respondent to pay a monetary penalty to the City's general fund.

Streamlined Programs

The Commission's "streamlined" programs resolve matters relating to the late filing of disclosure forms and minor disclosure mistakes. Enforcement actions involving factors in aggravation such as repeat offenses, substantial harm to the public, or the failure to cooperate during an investigation are not eligible for the streamlined programs.
