City Code of Ethics

Promoting high ethical standards and being accountable to those we serve, assures that our community can trust us. In 2018, the City Council adopted a Code of Ethics and Statement. These standards and guidelines apply to the City Council, appointed officials such as Planning Commissioners, and the City Manager.

As City employees and public servants to the Mercer Island community, we conduct ourselves with honesty and integrity and we strive to do what is best in the publicís interest. Our mission vision values, adopted by the Cityís Leadership Team in 2010, provides a solid framework for expectations. An Employee Code of Ethics guides employees and supports a culture based on transparency, honesty, integrity, and commitment.
