WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - The Wilmington City Council is eyeing an ordinance that would require city employees and officials to disclose delinquent taxes, fees and other obligations owed to the city.

The ordinance was to be presented to council members for review and approval on Thursday night.

If approved, council would be authorizing amendments to the city code requiring employees, including elected and appointed officials, to file annual reports regarding any outstanding tax or fee delinquencies with the city’s human resources department.

Employees would have to declare if they are delinquent on property taxes, water and sewer fees, license and inspection fees, parking or red light fines or fees, or any other obligation owed to the city.

Failure to comply with the disclosure law would result in disciplinary action and possible discharge.
