Ethics Advisory CommitteeOpinion 87-02
Is it proper for a district court judge to serve on a municipal public safety advisory committee?
Our answer is premised on the following representations made to the committee: 1) the city has its own municipal court, judge and facilities separate from the district court; 2) the Municipal Public Safety Committee is now comprised of citizens which will give advice on new municipal facilities concerning scope, cost, and timing.
Even though it is proper for the judge to serve as a member of the Municipal Public Safety Committee, the nature of that committee may change. Therefore, the judge must be sensitive to such changes and ascertain the propriety of continuing to be associated with it.
