Consider approval of Ordinance 2021-45, on the second of two readings, amending Chapter 2, Administration, Article 5, Code of Ethics, by adding a new Division 5 requiring registration of lobbyists and periodic reporting of contacts made by lobbyists with elected City officials, City Board and Commission members, and City Employees; establishing penalties for violations of this ordinance; providing certain exemptions from lobbying registration and reporting requirements; providing a savings clause; providing for the repeal of any conflicting provisions; and providing an effective date.

Per Mayor Hughson: The ERC reviewed my list and accepted most of my lobbying amendments that I plan to propose. They suggested a few more changes and I accepted most of those. Those amendments NOW that differ from what I proposed earlier are highlighted in light blue.

I also attach TWO versions of the ordinance with the amendments I plan to offer. The difference is amendment ONE - make this apply to City Council ONLY (this is Lobbying Ordinance - JH amends for Feb 15 2022). There are so many places showing the change that if this amendment fails, it will just complicate what is on the screen share so I provide a version WITHOUT amendment one, but all other amendments I plan to propose (this is Lobbying Ordinance - JH amends for Feb 15 2022 without amendment 1).
