    6. “CONFLICT OF INTEREST” NOTICE:
      Part III of Chapter 112, Fla.Stat., is the Code of Ethics for Public Officers and Employees. This Code defines “conflict” or “conflict of interest” to mean a situation in which regard for a private interest tends to lead to disregard of a public duty or interest. Fla.Stat. §112.312(8). The intent of this Code, in part, is that public office not be used for private gain. Fla.Stat. §112.311(1). A “conflict” or “conflict of interest” is something that would result in a special private gain to an individual, usually a special financial benefit. An appointed member of a committee of the City of Atlantic Beach will most likely be subject to the provisions of the State Code of Ethics. Disclosure of any potential conflict of interest should be made as soon as possible in the appointment process. While it may be difficult to anticipate a conflict of interest that could arise during future committee meetings, those known or anticipated initially, including those which others might perceive as a conflict of interest, should be disclosed during the appointment process.
    7. Statement of Financial Interest Forms
      Please Note: Members of the Community Development Board and both Pension Boards of Trustees are required to file Form 1-Statement of Financial Interests.
