Ethics Committee

The purpose of the Hahira Ethics Committee is to investigate complaints of an ethical nature regarding Hahira's elected officials.  The City of Hahira is committed to adhering to a code of practice and professional responsibilities to help guide all city government codes and practices. These include the principles, values, standards and rules of behavior that guide all of the decisions, procedures and systems of Hahira in a way that positively contribute to the welfare of our citizens, businesses, visitors and staff. 

Committee
The Ethics Committee shall consist of three (3) persons, one appointed by the Mayor, one appointed by the Council, and the third member appointed by the Mayor and Council.  The committee is advised by the City Attorney, Rob Plumb, and is governed by an Ethics Ordinance.

Receipt of Complaints
  • All complaints against elected officials shall be filed with the Ethics Committee.  All complaints shall be filed in writing, and can be submitted to City Attorney Rob Plumb.  Contact City Hall at (229) 794-2330 for more information.
  • Upon receipt of a written complaint, the Ethics Committee, along with the City Attorney, shall review it to determine whether the complaint is unjustified, frivolous, patently unfounded, or fails to state facts sufficient to invoke the disciplinary jurisdiction of the Hahira City Council.  The Ethics Committee shall be empowered to collect evidence and information concerning any complaint and to add the findings and results of its investigations to the file containing such complaint.
  • Upon completion of its investigation of a complaint, the Ethics Committee shall be empowered to dismiss those complaints which are unjustified, frivolous, patently unfounded, or which fail to state facts sufficient to invoke the disciplinary jurisdiction of the Hahira City Council; provided, however, that a rejection of such complaint by the ethics committee shall not deprive the complaining party of any action he might otherwise have at law or in equity against the respondent government servant.
  • The Ethics Committee shall be empowered to conduct probable cause investigations, to take evidence and hold hearings where provided for in the rules.
