Prohibitions on Lobbying of Board Members
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.
