Who Does the Code of Ethics Cover?

The Trenton Code of Ethics covers regular employees of any department, agency or board of the City, excluding the Trenton Public Schools. The Code also covers what are called “officers”, which includes any person elected to any office of the City of Trenton, who is a member of an independent municipal, county or regional authority, who is a managerial executive or confidential employee of a local government agency, or who is a member of specified boards and commissions, but excluding the Trenton Board of Education or any board or commission of the Trenton Public Schools. Officers are not necessarily employees. Examples of officers include city council members and members of the Zoning Board, Planning Board and other boards.
