Zoning and Planning Public Ethics Law
The Frederick County Zoning and Planning Public Ethics Law of the Annotated Code of Maryland is effective as of June 1, 2007.

The law prohibits contributions to members of the Board of County Commissioners by applicants with interests in property that is the subject of certain zoning and planning applications pending before the Board and restricts the ability of the Board member to vote and participate in the application proceedings if such a contribution was received.

The Public Ethics Law also requires Board members to disclose ex parte communications about pending applications.
