Ethics Ordinance

The Ethics Ordinance establishes an Ethics Board, which is charged with acting on complaints and conducting formal hearings. Before the Ethics Board can conduct an investigation, someone must file a Sworn Complaint (using the attached form) which alleges facts constituting a violation of the Ethics Ordinance by a public official or public employee. All sworn complaints are considered public records under the New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act. The more information you can provide, the better. The Ethics Board will not publicly share your name unless required to by law.

If you become aware of a situation that is believed to be a violation of the Roosevelt County Ethics Ordinance by a county employee or elected official, please use the below link to report the information to the Roosevelt County Manager’s Office.
