Sec. 27-1-6. Disclosure statements.

(a) Thirty days prior to an election, all candidates and ballot measure committees that have received one thousand dollars or more in contributions, cumulatively from one or more contributors, shall file with the city clerk a disclosure statement including the following information for each contribution received:
(1) The date of the contribution;
(2) The amount of the contribution;
(3) The name of the contributor;
(4) The contributor’s address.
(b) Any candidate or ballot measure committee that is not required to file a disclosure statement pursuant to subsection (a) of this section and who subsequently receives a contribution that causes the candidate to exceed the one thousand dollar threshold for contributions, cumulatively from one or more contributors, shall file with the city clerk a disclosure statement within three business days of the receipt of the contribution.
(c) Any candidate or ballot measure committee that is required to file a disclosure statement pursuant to either subsection (a) or subsection (b) of this section shall file with the city clerk supplementary disclosure statements for each contribution of one hundred dollars or more, cumulatively from a single contributor, received after the filing of the initial disclosure statement.
(d) For contributions of one hundred dollars or more received between thirty and three days prior to the election, candidates and ballot measure committees shall file supplementary disclosure statements within three business days of receipt of the contribution. For contributions of one hundred dollars or more received during the three days immediately preceding the election, candidates and ballot measure committees shall file supplementary disclosure statements within one business day of receipt of the contribution.
(e) Disclosure statements and supplementary disclosure statements must be filed with the city clerk by 5:00 P.M. on the date on which the statement is due.
(f) For purposes of this article, a candidate or ballot measure committee is deemed to have received a contribution as follows:
(1) A monetary contribution is received on the date that the candidate or ballot measure committee or the treasurer for or agent of the candidate or ballot measure committee obtains possession or control of the check or other negotiable instrument by which the contribution is made;
(2) A nonmonetary contribution is received on the earlier of the following two dates:
(A) The date that the candidate or ballot measure committee or the treasurer for or agent of the candidate or ballot measure committee obtains possession or control of the goods or services; or
(B) The date that the candidate or ballot measure committee otherwise receives the benefit of the contribution. In the event goods or services are provided to a candidate or ballot measure committee and either the candidate, the ballot measure committee, or the provider of the goods or services has received assurances of any kind that the provider will be reimbursed by a third-party, the candidate or ballot measure committee shall be deemed to have received the contribution on the earlier of the two dates listed above and shall list the provider of the goods or services as the “contributor,” within the meaning of subsection (a)(3) of this section, on its disclosure statement. Once the provider receives reimbursement from the third-party and provides to the candidate or ballot measure committee documentation of such reimbursement, the candidate or ballot measure committee shall promptly file an amended disclosure statement showing the third-party, and not the provider, as the “contributor” of the goods or services.
(3) A loan or enforceable promise is received on the date that the candidate or ballot measure committee receives the benefit of the contribution, irrespective of whether the candidate or ballot measure committee has received any actual negotiable instrument from the contributor.
(g) Upon receipt of a disclosure statement from a candidate or ballot measure committee, the city clerk shall make the disclosure statement available to the public upon request and shall post it on the city’s website as soon as is practicable.
(h) The filing of disclosure statements pursuant to this article does not relieve candidates or ballot measure committees from their obligation to file disclosure statements as required by the Fair Political Practices Act. (Ord. No. 1377, § 3 (part); Ord. No. 1428, § 5.)
