Background

In March of 2019, the Township Board of Trustees adopted the Ethics Policy of the Charter Township of Clinton. The policy provides minimum standards of conduct for elected and appointed officials.  It includes limits of gifts, the use of Township property for non-business purposes, and provisions to prevent conflict of interest in voting and contracting.

This page is a resource for Township officials, as well as the public. It provides a complete and up-to-date version of the Township’s ethics policy; public filings of the Township’s elected officials; and information on the Board of Ethics policy and procedure, including the process for filing a complaint.

  • Process and make determinations as to complaints filed by any persons alleging violations of the Ethics Policy and to make recommendations to the Township Trustees when deemed appropriate
