The Ethics in Government Code sets standards which no City official or employee should violate. Just as important, it sets aspirations for ethical conduct that go above and beyond the minimum requirements.
The Ethics Code is an ethical guide that reflects the values of our City. The people of Minneapolis deserve elected and appointed officials, city employees, and volunteers who maintain the highest ethical principles.
All new local officials and employees must attend ethics training within 6 months of starting at the City. Employees must then take ethics training every 3 years. Elected and appointed officials every 4 years.
