Ethics Board

The Cornwall-on-Hudson Village Board recognizes that there are rules of ethical conduct for public officers and employees that must be observed if a high degree of moral conduct is to be obtained and if public confidence is to be maintained in the village.

The proper operation of the village government requires that: officers and employees be independent, impartial, objective, unbiased and responsible to the people of the Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson; public office not be used for personal gain; public officers and employees maintain the highest standards of integrity and discharge faithfully the duties of their office, regardless of personal considerations; and the public has confidence in the officers and employees thereof.

The village implements these objectives through the establishment of standards of conduct; to provide for punishment of violations of such standards; and to create a Board of Ethics to render advisory opinions to the village’s officers and employees.
