The legislative body of the city finds and declares that:
(A) Public office and employment with the city are public trusts;
(B) The vitality and stability of the government of the city depend upon the public’s confidence in the integrity of its elected and appointed officers and employees. Whenever the public receives a conflict between the private interests and the public duties of a city officer or employee, that confidence is imperiled; and
(C) The government of the city has a duty to provide its citizens with standards by which they determine whether public duties are being faithfully performed, and to make its officers and employees aware of the standards which the citizenry rightfully expects them to comply with while conducting their duties.
