Wayne County Ethics Board

Wednesday, May 29, 2013
The seven-member Wayne County Ethics Board was established as part of the new Wayne County Ethics Ordinance, which was approved by the Wayne County Commission on April 5, 2012.
The seven-member Wayne County Ethics Board was established as part of the Wayne County Ethics Ordinance, which was approved by the Wayne County Commission on April 5, 2012, and amended on December 18, 2014. The ordinance is the product of an ethics task force that was created by Wayne County Commissioner Gary Woronchak shortly after he was elected chair of the Commission in January 2011. Chairman Woronchak’s intent was to create a comprehensive ordinance that sets into law standards of conduct and defines ethical behavior for county employees and vendors. It also creates a system to hold accountable any person who breaks the rules. As outlined in the ordinance, the Ethics Board was established to receive and consider complaints of potential violations of the ordinance.

The Wayne County Commission and each of the six countywide officials – county executive, treasurer, register of deeds, sheriff, prosecutor and clerk – appoint one member to the board at staggered terms. The Commission’s appointment to the Board is approved by the majority of the 15-member legislative body.

This website has been created by the Wayne County Ethics Board as a means for keeping Wayne County residents informed about its activities. The site also includes information on how individuals can notify the Ethics Board of suspected violations of the Ethics Ordinance.

The Wayne County Ethics Board meets in Hearing Room 704 of the Guardian Building, 500 Griswold, Detroit, MI 48226. Meetings are open to the public. The next meeting date is to be determined.

Wayne County Compass

Tuesday, May 14, 2013 – Public Services
Wayne County Compass brings together live traffic updates, shots from state highway cameras and weather reports, but adds to it GPS-based updates of where plows are and reports of where they’ve cleared roads for the last eight hours.
Wayne County’s Compass is a web-based, cutting-edge technology designed to help the motoring public better manage their commutes.

During a winter event, drivers can access Compass and learn what major highways and surface roads were cleared by the Roads Division’s fleet of snow plows/salt trucks.

Compass also provides:
GPS data; route histories of the vehicle fleet; radar from the National Weather Forecast Office; the location of the user; and real time views from MDOT traffic cameras and other data. Designed by Wayne County Department of Technology, Compass is the first system of its kind in metro Detroit and one of the first in the United States.
