Conflict of Interest and On-Line Training

Conflict of Interest

The State Ethics Commission requires that all municipalities distribute the Summary of the Conflict of Interest Law for Municipal Employees each year to comply with the conflict of interest law mandatory education and training requirements. As a result, below please find a PDF of the latest version (revised in November 14, 2016) of the "Conflict of Interest Law Summary for Municipal Employees" along with an acknowledgement form that should be signed and returned to the Town Clerk’s Office by all Town of Grafton employees, committee members, and board members.
