What’s missing from new Jacksonville ethics office? Money
No budget or staff yet, despite being adopted by City Council last summer.
Posted: January 17, 2012
Seven months after it was signed into law, Jacksonville’s Office of Ethics, Compliance and Oversight still has no budget. Its one employee, a director appointed last month, works part-time but hasn’t drawn a city paycheck since leaving an earlier job in October. She’s hoping volunteers will help get the new office in gear — and that the city releases enough money for her to get paid again.
