Barnesville still City of Ethics

Barnesville has been recertified as one of more than 200 Georgia municipalities designated Certified City of Ethics at the Georgia Municipal Association annual convention. The voluntary City of Ethics program began in 1999 and Barnesville first took part in June 2006. The program was developed by a panel of business and government leaders to encourage cities to adopt and adhere to a set of key ethical principles and adopt a local ethics ordinance. The ordinance must contain definitions, prohibited conduct and due process for officials accused of violations in areas such as financial disclosures, conflicts of interests and outside employment. The code must also contain penalties for city officials who violate the ordinance.
