Tickets and / or Passes Receipt and Distribution Policy

One established and recognized method of promoting a community's unique assets and to encourage economic investment is to initiate a marketing strategy that includes promotions, invitations to City and community events, City-sponsored business outreach, and similar efforts. From time to time, the City receives tickets or passes from third party sources, both public and private, which the City desires to distribute as public resources in a manner that furthers the City's governmental and public purposes, such as the promotion of local businesses, community resources, programs, and facilities.

On December 11, 2008, the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) adopted new Regulation 18944.1, effective February 8, 2009, pertaining to disbursement of tickets and passes to and from a public agency (such as the City of Bellflower), which are used by individual public officials. These new regulations apply to tickets and passes for admission to a facility, event, show, or performance for an entertainment, amusement, recreational, or similar purpose. Unless specific circumstances exist, such tickets or passes constitute a gift to a public official subject to the annual gift limitation from any one source in a calendar year, as set forth in FPPC regulations. However, if the tickets/passes fit within certain descriptive uses, such as a City business use, then such tickets/passes do not constitute a gift to the public official.

Regulation 18944.1 requires agencies to adopt a written policy stating the specific governmental or public purpose accomplished by the distribution of the ticket or pass to an agency official; prepare reports disclosing the distribution of tickets or passes (California Fair Political Practices Form 802); and post its written policy and disclosure reports on the agency's website.
