New Windsor Town Board passes modern ethics reform 

New Windsor, NY – The Town of New Windsor Town Board has unanimously passed modern ethics legislation.

This modern and forward thinking ethics law sets a new standard for local governments and follows state recommended guidance for local ethics laws. It shows government can achieve ethics reform while Albany, Washington and other levels of government sit back and do nothing.

The updated code of ethics includes:

·         Addition of a “revolving door” policy which places restrictions on municipal officers or employees pursuing or accepting private post-government employment opportunities that conflict with previous official acts or duties. 

·         Bars acceptance of gifts or gratuities related to official duties.

·         Provides authority for government ethics oversight.

·         Modernizes the board of ethics to meet state requirements and allows for a fully functioning board to be appointed and operate.

Town Supervisor George Green stated, “The Town of New Windsor is proud to be able to modernize our ethics code and ensure all citizens can count on honest and accountable government from their town. With a fully functioning board of ethics and modern ethics reform our town government is positioned to serve as an example for other municipalities and levels of government to the good that can achieved by working together for the best interests of all residents.”

The town board will review interested parties seeking to serve on the board of ethics and make appointments moving forward over the next several months.
