On February 16, 2005, the Inland Empire Utilities Agency (IEUA) adopted
Resolution No. 2005-2-9, establishing the Agency’s first formal ethics policy which addresses the
conduct of Board members and all Agency employees. While the Board does not have issues or concerns
with any of our employees’ ethics, as you are aware, the conduct of governmental employees in general
has received significant review over the last couple of years. Consequently, it was the desire of the
Board to take a proactive position regarding the professional conduct of both Board members and
Due to the importance of this issue, a complete copy of Resolution No. 2005-2-9
is attached for your information. Additionally, the Agency has contracted with an outside provider
(EthicsPoint, Inc.) for a toll free hotline, 1-866-EthicsP (1-866-384-4277) for use by both our staff and
members of the public to report any unethical behavior on the part of any Board member or other Agency
employee. Additionally, reports may be made via EthicsPoint’s website at www.ethicspoint.com. EthicsPoint,
