Ethics Advisory Opinions
Title 4 of the Cuyahoga County Code ("Ethics Law") designates the Agency of Inspector General as the ethics investigative officer for Cuyahoga County. In an effort to prevent violations of the Ethics Law, the Agency of Inspector General will periodically publish broad advisory opinions offering guidance to County employees, contractors and lobbyists on the Agency of Inspector General's interpretation of certain provisions of the Ethics Law. County employees, contractors or lobbyists seeking ethical guidance on a specific situation should contact the Agency of Inspector General directly.
The following is a list of the broad ethics advisory opinions issued by the Agency of Inspector General. The opinions rendered in these memorandums are solely the opinions of the Agency of Inspector General with regard to its interpretation of the Ethics Law. These opinions expressly do not address the application or enforcement of any corresponding Ohio Revised Code Sections. Nor are these opinions binding on any external entity, including, but not limited to, the Ohio Ethics Commission.
