Linn County’s newly created Code of Ethics

To my knowledge, Linn County has never had a written Code of Ethics since its founding. So I was pleased today when the Board of Supervisors approved it on a 5-0 vote.

Now comes the walking-the-talk phase. Will the Supervisors honor the policy they approved? Or did they just go through the motions so that when the outside CPAs doing their annual audit ask: “Hey, do you have an ethics policy?” The Board can answer, “Why yes, we do”. Form over function? Or words to live by? Time will tell. –Joel D. Miller – Linn County Auditor
