The City of El Cerrito Conflict of Interest Code
Adopted by the El Cerrito City Council - Resolution No. 2022-68
Effective: September 20, 2022
Statement of economic interests - form 700
The California Political Reform Act, (Gov. Code Sections 81000-91014) requires many local public officials and employees to file public, personal financial disclosure reports known as Statements of Economic Interests - FPPC Form 700.
Under the Act, cities are required to adopt and implement a separate Conflict of Interest Code. Designated Employees, Commissioners, and Elected Officials must file Statements of Economic Interests. The designated filers and the types of economic interests they must disclose are listed in the City of El Cerrito’s Conflict of Interest Code.
The City Clerk, as Filing Officer, administers the Conflict of Interest Code at the local level and notifies elected officials and each designated employee and commissioner of his or her filing obligation. Officials designated in the Conflict of Interest Code are required to file an Assuming Office Statement when they assume a designated position, an Annual Statement each year and a Leaving Office Statement within thirty days of resignation or termination. Additionally, candidates for elected office are required to file a Candidate Statement. Each type of statement has a specified "reporting period." Filers must sign the Form 700 under penalty of perjury. Once filed, the form is a public document and must be made available to the public upon request.

Gift to Agency reports - form 801Gifts to an agency are reported via FPPC Form 801 which is used to disclose payments made to the City when the payments provide a personal benefit to an official of the City. Examples may include travel, meals, and other benefits. Under certain circumstances, these payments will not result in a gift to the official, but will be considered a gift to the City provided that the payments are used for official City business and meet the requirements set forth in FPPC Regulation 18944.2, which is available on the FPPC website www.fppc.ca.gov.
Within 30 days after the end of a calendar quarter if aggregated reported payments total $2,500 or more, the local agency must post the information on the local agency website. Reporting that meets this requirement can be viewed by selecting the link(s) below.
