ORDINANCE NO. BL2016-526
An ordinance amending section 4.48.030 of the Metropolitan Code of Laws regarding confidential information.
WHEREAS, subsection 4.48.030(B) of the Metropolitan Code of Laws, addressing general standards of ethical conduct, references an additional section of the Code, section 4.48.100, entitled “Use of confidential [sic] information.”
WHEREAS, section 4.48.100 of the Metropolitan Code of Laws actually references the “[u]se of official information” -- not confidential information.
WHEREAS, it appears this slight mis-wording emerged from the original Ordinance No. 92-210.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT ENACTED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OF NASHVILLE AND DAVIDSON COUNTY:
Section 1. That subsection 4.48.030(B) of the Metropolitan Code of Laws is hereby amended by deleting the subsection in its entirety and substituting the following in lieu thereof:
B. Specific Standards. In order to fulfill this general prescribed standard, employees must also meet the specific standards set forth in Section 4.48.050, employee conflict of interest; Section 4.48.060, Employee disclosure requirements; Section 4.48.070, Gratuities and kickbacks; Section 4.48.080, Prohibition against contingent fees; Section 4.48.090, Restrictions on employment of present and former employees and Section 4.48.100, Use of official information.
Section 2. Be it further enacted, that this ordinance shall take effect from and after its passage, the welfare of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County requiring it.
