SHEPHERDSVILLE - There is a recommendation for a new ethics ordinance for Bullitt County government.
And, if approved, there would be few changes.
The biggest change would be the elimination of county employees to fill out financial disclosure paperwork.
The Bullitt County Ethics Commission met recently to discuss the proposed updating of an ordinance adopted in the 1990s.
According to chairman Keith Griffee, the only change was to eliminate county employees from filling out the paperwork.
Under the ordinance, those who are serving in elected office or those seeking county offices would have to fill out financial disclosure paperwork.
The Code of Ethics, which was a statewide focus by the late state Rep. John Harper of Shepherdsville, was adopted due to concerns over conflicts throughout Kentucky.
After taking the county employees out of the mix, the commission also approved a simpler filing form, which was prepared by county attorney Monica Robinson.
The next meeting of the Bullitt County Ethics Commission will be on March 1 at 2 p.m. at the county courthouse. The public is invited to attend.
