Conflicts of Interest

Chapter 176 of the Texas Local Government Code requires a person or agent of a person who contracts or seeks to contract for the sale or purchase of property, goods, or services with a local governmental entity to submit a Conflict of Interest Questionnaire to the City Secretary not later than the seventh business day after the date the person begins contract discussions or negotiations with the local governmental entity, or submits to the local governmental entity an application, response to a request for proposals or bids, correspondence, or another writing related to a potential agreement with the local governmental entity. The completed forms are required to be posted on the City's website. Each vendor is responsible for verifying they are using the most current form available from the Texas Ethics Commission website at www.ethics.state.tx.us.
