Direct Lobbying

          The City does not use a lobbying firm for general lobbying activities.

          Elected and appointed officials may from time to time advocate for or against legislation either as individuals or as a result of a position officially adopted by the City Council.  Any Council actions taken may be found in the minutes of the City Council.

City Affiliation to Organizations that Lobby

          The following is a list of organizations that the City has membership in which engage in lobbying activities.  The membership amounts shown are the total membership cost and should not be viewed as amounts spent solely on lobbying activities. The amounts shown were paid in FY2013. Information about each organization and their activities can be found by following the links provided.

          Positions taken by an organization the City is affiliated with do not necessarily reflect the views of the South Burlington City Council. The official views of the Council are found in minutes of their meetings, and are generally reported in The Other Paper.
