Board of Ethics

The Scranton Board of Ethics is responsible for advising on the city’s ethics rules, handling complaints, and deciding whether to pursue investigations. It appoints officers for investigations, holds hearings, and can issue subpoenas. The Board also educates public officials, city employees, and business entities on ethical conduct, and implements and enforces ethics rules. Additionally, it annually reviews financial interest statements as per the Code of Ethics.

The mission of the Board of Ethics is to administer and apply the ethics provisions of the Charter of the City of Scranton and the Code of Ethics to endeavor to maintain a high standard of ethical behavior by City employees and officials.

Beginning March 16, 2022, the Board of Ethics will meet every other month on the third Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. either virtually or in the Governor’s Room at Scranton City Hall.

Residents may send their comments/questions for the board in writing to be included in the official record by emailing no later than 2:00 p.m. on the day of the meeting. Changes to this schedule will be legally advertised in the Scranton Times-Tribune
