MUNCIE, IN—The Muncie Ethics Advisory Committee is seeking public comment on draft ethics standards to be included in an Ethics Ordinance to be drafted and presented for consideration by the Muncie City Council in the fall of 2024.

The Muncie Ethics Advisory Committee was established by the Muncie City Council in 2023. The resolution establishing the Ethics Advisory Committee charges it with establishing an ethics code to govern the official public conduct and actions of elected officials, appointees to boards and commissions, employees, and individuals and entities that have a business relationship with the City of Muncie. The resolution lists several specific issues and allows the Committee to identify other issues and establish standards for them.

A document with the draft standards is available for download from the City Council web page ( The document also includes information about how to submit feedback to the Committee.

The next meeting of the Muncie Ethics Advisory Committee is scheduled for Thursday, April 11, 2024 at Maring-Hunt Library, 2005 S. High Street, Muncie, IN.
