The expenditure reporting amount that lobbyists must report to the city of Aurora has been adjusted effective April 1 per Aurora city code.

The amendment to Aurora City Code Section 2-954 reads as follows:

(3)(a) An itemized list and the estimated value of any gift, entertainment, or direct expenditure equal
to or in excess of $75.00 $89.00 to, on behalf of, or benefitting the covered official for lobbying
purposes, including, but not limited to: monies, tickets, gratuities, expressed agreements, or any
tangible thing of value of any amount;

The new reporting amount will apply starting with the second quarter report (April 1 to June 30 activity) and is due July 15.

The city initially passed an ordinance in 2021 that requires any person or organization lobbying in Aurora to register with the Aurora City Clerk's Office prior to conducting any lobbying activities.
