The Arroyo Grande City Council determined Tuesday night what action to take as a result of an independent investigation claiming four of eight claims of misconduct against Mayor Jim Hill are substantiated.

A Fresno-based attorney released the independent investigation's findings in August. The investigation centered around claims that Hill had violated the Brown Act.

After hours of debate, discussion, and public input, council members ultimately decided with a 3-2 vote to put a couple of new rules into place for the mayor and the council itself:

  • Adopt a new password policy for city employees
  • Require Mayor Hill to complete one-on-one risk management training through the California Joint Powers Insurance Authority
  • Ask Mayor Hill to voluntarily step away from the South San Luis Obispo County Sanitation District Board and assign Mayor Pro Tem Tim Brown to the sanitation meetings
  • Conduct a comparison of ethics and conduct policies between Arroyo Grande City Council and the sanitation district
  • Complete a voluntary code of conduct document to be signed by city council members and commissioners
  • Come up with a new official policy on personal email use
