WATER DISTRICT COMMISSIONERS - OFFICES AND OFFICERS - EMPLOYERS AND EMPLOYEES - CONFLICT OF INTEREST - CONTRACTS
Applicability of Code of Ethics for Municipal Officers to Water District Commissioner and Part-time Employee 1.  A water district commissioner is a municipal officer subject to the Code of Ethics for Municipal Officers, chapter 42.23 RCW.  Under RCW 42.23.030 a water district commissioner cannot have a beneficial interest in a contract with the district where the water district's total liability exceeds $750 in any calendar month. 2.  A part-time employee, operating under the control of a board of water commissioners is not a municipal officer subject to the Code of Ethics for Municipal Officers.  Thus, the restrictions in RCW 42.23.030 do not apply to the part-time employee.
