The purpose of the Ethics Board is to assure the confidence of the general public in the integrity of Madison County government. The Ethics Board also reviews, investigates, and determines all complaints of potential violations of the Ethics Code requirements as outlined in Chapter 9 of the Kentucky Revised Statutes. In order to acheive and maintain high ethical standards, the Board provides a formal process for filing complaints and applies the Code of Ethics to all County employees-not just elected officials in cooperating to maintain public integrity.
