Do you need to file a lobbying expenditure report?
The city requires lobbyists to submit all lobbying expenditures involving City Council, staff decision makers, and/or City boards for the preceding six-month period.
Expenditure reporting must:
Lobbyists who have incurred no City lobbying expenses during the preceding period are not required to file a report.
Lobbyists who fail to file reports on or before the due date, in addition to other possible penalties, will not be permitted to engage in any lobbying activity until their reports are current.
Lobbying of the members of all City boards by lobbyists is prohibited outside of open, posted public meetings. However, lobbyists may provide written documents and information to the Recording Secretary of any city board for dissemination to all board members in advance of any city board meeting. Lobbying at public meetings is subject to the registration and reporting requirements. The prohibitions and requirements are in addition to the City’s Public Works and Procurements and Contracts Division policies, which prohibit proposers from any communication with Council members, selection committee members and City staff (with the exception of the assigned staff member), regarding the procurement process until a final award is made.
