Advisory opinion that the Code of Governmental Ethics prohibits a Covington Councilman, who has a 100% ownership interest in Northshore Images and Stitches LLC, from entering into transactions with the City of Covington or participating in matters in which his business would have a substantial economic interest. Further, the business of the councilman is not precluded from selling products with the city logo to employees of the city provided he employee uses his personal funds. Also, the councilman is precluded from providing compensated services to vendors who have contracts with the City.

providing compensated services to such vendors.
Similarly, the prohibitions set out in Question 4, under Section 1 1 13A(1)(a) and 1112 of the Code
would also be applicable in such a situation.
