Carroll County, Maryland Advances Ethics Ordinance
The Carroll County Board of County Commissioners voted 4-1 to move forward with a new ethics ordinance.
The ordinance was originally developed in 2014 after the Maryland General Assembly passed a bill in 2010 requiring all counties, municipalities, and boards of election to pass ethics ordinances.
Carroll is the only county in the state not yet in compliance.
The ethics ordinance would apply to candidates beginning with the 2018 elections. The ordinance will be discussed next at a public hearing on February 27.
