2.46.040. City Attorney advisory opinions
(1) Elected and appointed officials of Layton City may request of the City Attorney an advisory opinion concerning the application of the Municipal Officers' and Employees' Ethics Act. The City Attorney shall accept and process these advisory opinion requests. As soon as practicable, but not later than thirty (30) days after the City Attorney receives a request for an advisory opinion, the City Attorney shall render a written opinion to the Mayor, City Council, and to the City Manager. All advisory opinions shall be available for public review, but may be in such form and with such deletions as may be necessary to prevent the disclosure of the identity of the persons involved or to protect personal privacy interests.
(2) An advisory opinion rendered by the City Attorney, until amended or revoked by the City Attorney, shall be a defense in any action brought by a complainant against the elected or appointed official and shall be binding on the City in any subsequent proceedings concerning the person who requested the opinion and who acted in good faith upon it, unless material facts were omitted or misstated by the person requesting the opinion.
