The Board, by a majority vote of its membership, ordered that a public hearing be conducted for the purpose of exploring the following:

∙ That Lambert C. Boissiere, III failed to submit an annual personal financial statement by November 15, 2009 as required by Section 1124.2 of the Code of Governmental Ethics;
∙ That a Notice of Delinquency was served on Lambert C. Boissiere, III on April 1, 2010 giving him fourteen (14) business days to submit a compliant annual personal financial disclosure statement;
∙ That Lambert C. Boissiere, III failed to submit a compliant annual personal financial disclosure statement by April 22, 2010;

Boissiere, III may have violated Section 1124.2 and Section 1124.4 of the Code of Governmental Ethics by failing to file a compliant annual personal financial disclosure statement within fourteen (14) business days from receipt of the Notice of Delinquency, and is therefore subject to civil penalties of $100 a day until the statement is filed, not to exceed $2,500.
