Incompatible Activities Rules
The Board of Supervisors' Resolution No. 01-207, adopted July 31, 2001 (10), sets forth rules relating to incompatible activities to County Officers and employees. The resolution implements provisions of the Government Code now set forth in Section 1125 et. seq. Government Code Section 1126. It forbids local agency (including County) officers or employees to "engage in any employment, activity, or enterprise for compensation which is inconsistent, incompatible, in conflict with, or inimical to his or her duties as a local agency officer or employee or with the duties, functions, or responsibilities of his or her appointing power or the agency by which he or she is employed." This legislation prevents local government officers and employees from using their government position in any way for private gain and participation in outside activities which will affect their performance of agency duties. The Board's resolution also describes the rules to be adopted by each appointing authority and the penalties for violation of those rules.
In addition to provisions relating to County Officers and employees, the resolution requires decision-making members of Boards, Commissions and Committees appointed by the Board of Supervisors to disclose to the Committee on Incompatible Activities in writing any outside employment or activity engaged in for compensation which relates to their county duties or to the functions and responsibilities of the department which they serve or which may be subject to approval by another County Officer or employee. Boards, Commissions and Committees whose duties are purely advisory, are excluded from the provisions in Resolution 01-107.
