The City of Gainesville Lobbying Ordinance requires registration of all lobbyists who engage in efforts to influence the Mayor or City Commissioners or Board members of the CRA on matters within Commission or CRA jurisdiction. Prior to engaging in lobbying, each lobbyist will be required to file with the Clerk of the Commission a registration statement which contains general identification information as to the lobbyist and their client(s). Even if you lobby only on an occasional basis, it is important that you familiarize yourself with the lobbying rules. At this site, you will find links to the lobbying ordinance, frequently asked questions and answers, registration form, withdrawal form, and the lobbyist registry.
