City Council members are exempt from a new Mountain View rule requiring fingerprints of all new city employees.

The council approved the resolution on Tuesday. The San Jose Mercury News says the city will spend another $5,200 per year to fingerprint all employees.

The San Francisco Bay city already fingerprints employees and most volunteers in the police, fire and parks and recreation departments. The latest move exempts elected officials.

The cities of San Jose, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara and Campbell fingerprint prospective employees to ensure they're not leaving any criminal history off their applications.
