Ethics Hotline

What is the Ethics Hotline?
EAThe City of Gunnison provides an anonymous and confidential method for the public to report unethical or inappropriate actions with this Ethics Line. We have engaged Ethical Advocate, an organization that specializes in advocating ethical culture and behavior in the workplace, to work with us in developing systems and communications to achieve integrity, ethical behavior, openness, and the ability to quickly react to suggestions, feedback, and unethical behavior in our workplace.

Prior to submitting a report to Ethical Advocate you should make best efforts to resolve a particular issue through our administrative process and/or supervisory management, if appropriate.

No retaliatory action will be tolerated against anyone for reporting or inquiring in good faith about a potential breach in policy; or against anyone seeking assistance about the process used to report a suspected breach in policy. Be careful to ensure no personable identifying information about you or inappropriate government information is submitted.

After you submit a report, remember to log back in with your user name and password to add information or respond anonymously to any questions left for you.
