Since the initial adoption of the Sunrise Code of Ethics in 1985, the City of Sunrise has been committed to ethical and transparent government. In addition to strengthening the Code of Ethics from time to time, in 2007 the Sunrise City Commission designed a comprehensive means of monitoring and regulating lobbyists' activities and expenditures. The Broward County Commission recently augmented these practices by extending their uniform standards governing behavior and reporting to all Broward County municipal elected officials and lobbyists.
Information that is available through this page includes a variety of disclosure documents, campaign finance reports, and information related to lobbyist contacts, registration, and expenditures.
Questions related to ethics disclosures and lobbyist registration should be directed to the City Clerk’s office at 954-746-3333.

Lobbyist Registration Overview
In December 2007, the City of Sunrise designed a comprehensive means of monitoring lobbyists' activities and expenditures. The City Code requires lobbyists to register annually each fiscal year with the City Clerk and to identify the principal for whom he or she lobbies. Lobbyists are also required to file annual expense reports. Lobbyists and elected officials alike are required to report their meetings and the subject matter. Additionally, the City of Sunrise prohibits lobbying activity in connection with the City's procurement process.
