Companies doing business with Broward County got letters this week warning them: Please do not give gifts this holiday season to county staff or their family members.

The letter has the subject line “Broward County’s ‘Code of Ethics — No Gift Policy” and is dated Dec. 6.

It alerts recipients that the County Commissioner “recently approved landmark ethics reform” that includes a prohibition on “gifts of any kind” being given by a vendor or potential vendor to “any county employee or their immediate family.”

“With the holiday season upon us,” the letter says, vendors are respectfully asked NOT to deliver any gift(s) to an individual, department, office or division of the county government or the immediate family of same.”
