Topic: authority

No ‘conflict’


Letters to the Editor

Leslie V. Batchelor
Disclosure of personal conflicts of interest of Urban Renewal Commissioners is governed by Title 11, Section 38-118 of the Oklahoma Statutes. That statute categorically prohibits the voluntary acquisition of any personal interest, direct or indirect, in an urban renewal project. Certain other potential conflicts must be disclosed to the Urban Renewal Authority and the municipal governing body.

Contrary to the statement in the article, state law does not require the Urban Renewal Authority to file conflict of interest forms with the secretary of state’s office. Nor does the law require the filing of any form when there is no conflict of interest.
