Certification under the Kentucky League of Cities (KLC) Certified City of Ethics Program is a way to recognize cities and city officials that have adopted principles and procedures that offer guidance on ethical issues, and a mechanism to resolve complaints at the local level. In addition, this program increases public trust and confidence in city governments and their services through the training and recognition that this program promotes.
Residents and businesses expect efficiency, inclusiveness, and ethical leadership from local government.

Any KLC member city may apply for this multi-faceted certification program by following these steps:
The initial review time to make certain that the ordinance complies with KRS 65.003, preparation for training and the actual training will be five hundred dollars ($500.00) due and payable 30 days from the completion of training.
Additional costs associated with this program will be mileage from the KLC office to and from the training location, and any per diem or hotel if required. The need to spend the night will be determined on a case-by-case basis. These costs will be billed to the city at the completion of this program. In the event that more than one city can be trained within one travel period, the additional travel costs will be divided between the two cities.
