Florida League of Cities

The League has compiled numerous resources on ethics and civility for municipal elected officials and their employees, in whom citizens have placed their trust.

Florida has very broad laws related to ethics, public meetings and public records, and many cities have adopted additional standards for their officials and employees. Many local governments have also adopted civility pledges to ensure that the public, elected officials and staff follow reasonable rules for public conduct.

This page contains information on ethics and civility publications, training, government agency resources and other tools to assist elected and appointed officials, employees and volunteers.

Our Director of Leadership Development and Education Dr. Scott Paine also writes about ethics and civility frequently in his blog. Click here to view the latest posts.
