OH Attorney General Opines On Compatibility of Various Planning and Legislative Functions

The Ohio Attorney General opined that a person may serve simultaneously as 1) director of a regional planning commission and member of a village legislative authority, 2) director of a regional planning commission and member of a board of township trustees, 3) county planner and member of a village legislative authority, and 4) county planner and member of a board of township trustees, so long as no contract exists between the two authorities in which an individual has simultaneous positions. Additionally, for each of the above simultaneous positions, if the individual is a state or local employee who is paid by federal loans or grants in one position, then that individual may only serve simultaneous positions only if she seeks election to the other position in a nonpartisan election.
