Serving with Integrity and Accountability
The Town of Jupiter believes that earning and maintaining the public's trust involves serving with integrity and accountability in a way that inspires confidence and prevents conflicts between private interests and public duties.
Jupiter works with the Palm Beach County Commission on Ethics and the Office of the Inspector General to ensure that all elected officials, committee and board members, and staff are trained and aware of Palm Beach County's Code of Ethics, and related processes and procedures. For more information on training of elected officials, staff, and board and committee members, view our Ethics Training page.
Office of Inspector General
Under Article XII, Section 2-422, Palm Beach County Code, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) is created and established in Palm Beach County to:
- Provide independent oversight of Town operations;
- Detect and prevent fraud, waste, mismanagement, misconduct, and other abuses by elected and appointed officials and employees, agencies, contractors, subcontractors, and other parties doing business with the Town and/or receiving Town funds;
- Promote economy, efficiency, and effectiveness in government; and
- Conduct audits and investigations of Town documents and receive full and unrestricted access to Town records.
Good government is everyone’s business. By working together, government elected officials and employees, contractors, citizens, and the Office of Inspector General, government can be more efficient, effective, and ethical.
