As an expression of the standards of conduct for elected and appointed officials, employees and volunteers expected by the township, the Code of Ethical Conduct is intended to be self-enforcing. It therefore becomes most effective when everyone is thoroughly familiar with it and embraces its provisions. For this reason, ethical standards shall be included in the regular orientation for Township Board candidates, board and commissions applicants, newly elected and appointed officials, employees and volunteers. Township officials, appointees, employees and volunteers shall sign a statement affirming they have read and understand the Code of Ethical Conduct. In addition, the Code of Ethical Conduct shall be annually reviewed by the Township Board, boards and commissions, appointees, employees and volunteers. The Township Board shall consider recommendations for updates to the Code of Ethical Conduct and will update it as necessary.
