Forsyth County News
The Forsyth County Ethics Board is considering a way to make information about the panel and its operations more accessible to the public.

The group discussed an update to a proposed board Web site during its Nov. 19 meeting.

The site, vice chairman Kevin McDonough explained, would include copies of important documents such as a state ethics complaint form and a request to submit additional evidence in support of a complaint.

“One of the goals of our board is to make sure that this is an accessible board,” McDonough said. “Any government agency is only as valuable as it is able to be used by people.

“So what we were working towards is making information about this board available to the citizens of Forsyth County online.”

He said the site would also have information about the board and its members, as well as a list of frequently asked questions.

The five-member panel, which meets at least twice a year, agreed to schedule a meeting in the coming months to formally adopt the plan.

The board investigates complaints related to ethical standards filed against county employees and elected and appointed county officials.

In addition to McDonough, the board includes Bob Charles, Tim Perry, Rusty Ricketson and chairman George Pirkle.
