Ethics

The conduct of public officials, including KUB commissioners, is governed by provisions of Tennessee law. Accordingly, KUB's Board has adopted an Ethics Policy establishing standards of conduct for KUB commissioners, officers, and employees.

Before proceeding to the questions below, please read the following related to Ethics and Political Activity.

Tennessee law prohibits a public entity such as KUB from entering into contracts or buying goods and services from businesses in which a member of the Board of Commissioners has a “Direct Interest.” A “Direct Interest” is an interest in a business as an owner, partner, or one having other controlling interest. A controlling interest arises when no other shareholder owns more shares of stock in the corporation than you.

The law also prohibits KUB Commissioners from being indirectly interested in any contract to which KUB is a party unless the Commissioner publicly acknowledges his interest. “Indirect interest” means any contract in which the Commissioner is interested but not directly so, or includes contracts where the officer is otherwise directly interested but is the sole supplier of the goods or services to KUB.

Do you own, have an interest in, or work for a business that maintains a business relationship with KUB, other than the purchase of utility service?

Conflict of Interest *

If the answer is “yes,” please describe in detail the nature of the business and applicant’s relationship with the company doing business with KUB.

I have read, understand, and agree to fully comply with the KUB Ethics Policy if I am selected to serve as a KUB Commissioner.
