SUMMARY OF ORDINANCE NO. 013-658, AN ORDINANCE AMENDING TITLE 1 CHAPTER 15 OF THE FARMINGTON CITY CODE CONCERNING CRIMINAL HISTORY BACKGROUND INVESTIGATIONS
On February 4, 2013, Ordinance No. 013-658 was adopted by the City Council of the City of Farmington, Minnesota. Due to the lengthy nature of the Ordinance, the following summary of the ordinance has been prepared for publication and approved by the City Council as authorized by state law.
The ordinance adopts the state’s recommended provisions and is required to authorize the Farmington Police Department to conduct criminal history background investigations using the state criminal history databases for volunteer and employment applicants with the City and on applicants for city issued licenses, permits and other approvals. The ordinance provides that the Police Department conduct the criminal history background checks in a manner consistent with requirements in state law and state policies that otherwise restrict accessing state criminal history records for non-criminal investigation purposes. Provisions include providing notice to the person being investigated, obtaining their written consent, notifying them of the results, and referencing state statutory procedures if adverse permit or licensing decisions are made based on the results of the investigation.
A printed copy of the Ordinance is available for inspection by any person during regular office hours at the office of the City Clerk.
