Welcome to Wellington's lobbyist registration information page.
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. To view more information about lobbying regulations, please visit the Lobbying Regulations page on Palm Beach County's website.
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.
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
- The subject matter of the lobbying contact
