The Ethics Commission’s Futures Committee goal is to be proactive and identify ways to optimize ethics in City of Wilmington government. It is also seeking to examine how to best modernize the Commission and make recommendations to the full Commission. The Futures Committee will start by looking at three issues in the following order:

  1. Making the Ethics Commission web page more informative for the public. This FAQ document was the first output of the Futures Committee.

  2. Making recommendations regarding the City Code. The Commission will be reviewing best practices and code language of other governments and comparing them to the current City Code. After a careful and thoughtful review, it expects to make recommendations to the Mayor and City Council regarding potential updates to the City Code. Any such changes would have to be passed by ordinance.

  3. Amending the Ethics Commission’s rules. The Commission intends to amend the rules as needed to modernize the Commission and help it operate most effectively and efficiently. Any such changes would have to be approved by the Administrative Board.


The Futures Committee typically meets the third Tuesday of the month in the Atrium Conference Room located adjacent to the Department of Finance on the 5th Floor of the City/County building. Meeting dates and location are subject to change. Meetings are open to the public.
