City Procurement Policy
The City of South Hutchinson is committed to ethical purchasing practices.

Employee Conflict of Interest
Public employees must discharge their duties impartially so as to assure fair competitive access to governmental purchasing by responsible contractors. Moreover, they should conduct themselves in such a manner as to foster public confidence in the integrity of the city purchasing organization.
Any attempt to realize personal gain through public employment by conduct inconsistent with the proper discharge of the employee’s duties is a breach of a public trust.
