VII ANNUAL CONFLICT OF INTEREST STATEMENTS-PLANNING AND ZONING
COMMISSION- RESOLUTION 2008-01 AND PERSONAL STATEMENTS
The conflict of interest statements will be a new annual requirement for the Planning and Zoning Commissioners.
The format is suggested by the Utah League of Cities and Towns and will
be implemented into
upon approval from Commissioners at tonight’s meeting. The form is broken down into sections as a code of
conduct for all members of the Commission to agree upon and disclose information pertinent to serving on the
Commission. Commissioner Nielson discussed the contents of the disclosure with the other members of the
Commission to hear their suggestions and clarification of the wording. The document reads, “I shall not do the
following: Have meetings one-on-one with petitioners”. Commissioner Nielson understands the intent and wants
to make sure he honors the language. Nick Tatton stated that it is good to go out and review the projects but
individual meetings with applicants by Commissioners should be discouraged. Commissioner Shook said that
there is a difference between getting clarification and lobbying especially in a town this size. It is critical that the
entire Commission keeps a fair distance from the people involved in the projects as criticism will hold the
Commission up from doing its job. Commissioner Alfred Richens agrees the whole group should hear everything
at one time not on a one on one basis. Commissioner Nielson also requested clarification on the statement, “I shall
not do the following: Base a vote on a single personal experience.” He feels that it is necessary to meet with both
sides on any issue. Commissioner Alfred Richens stated that all decisions should be based on law and sound
planning not public pressure. The Commissioners felt that all public meetings should be recorded and held before
the Commission and if the information is not there to make a decision, the item should be tabled and staff
instructed to seek out the answers to any questions. Field trips are sometimes necessary for the Commissioners as
a whole, but one on one should not be practiced. All members of the Commission handed in their individual
signed statements to the City Recorder for attachment to the Resolution. MOTION. Commissioner Richens
moved to approve the individual conflict of interest statements for each Commissioner and Resolution 2008-01.
Motion seconded by Commissioner Shook and carried.
