Palm Beach County Lobbyist Registration Ordinance

If you are a paid lobbyist, attempting to influence the outcome of a matter that would ultimately come before the Board of County Commissioners or any participating municipality, you must comply with the requirements of the Palm Beach County Lobbyist Registration Ordinance. This ordinance requires lobbyists to register before engaging in lobbyist activities. Even if you lobby only on an occasional basis, it is important that you familiarize yourself with these lobbying regulations.

The Village of Wellington follows Palm Beach County's Lobbyist Registration Ordinance and all  Lobbyists doing business in the Village of Wellington must first register with Palm Beach County.  The link to information pertaining to registering as a lobbyist in Palm Beach County can be found below as well as a link to the County’s ordinance.

In accordance with the County’s ordinance, except when appearing before the board, local municipal governing body, or any advisory board, all persons shall sign a contact  log for each instance of lobbying.  When doing business in the Village of Wellington, the contact log will be maintained in the Office of the Village Clerk.  The person shall provide his or her name, whether or not the person is a lobbyist as defined in the County’s ordinance, the name of each principal, if any, represented in the course of the particular contact and the subject matter of the lobbying contact.  The contact log shall be maintained by Wellington for a period of five fiscal years.
