MORPC relies upon the input and participation of many members, other local governments, entities and agencies in its decision-making. The diverse background and experience of Transportation Policy Committee and Commission members may cause, from time-to-time, conflicting and competing interests to exist within the context of that decision-making process. To continue to ensure the integrity of this process, it is imperative that decisions made by MORPC be free of any undue influence, conflicts of interest, or appearances of impropriety by all participants in the decision-making process, whether at the Commission, committee, staff or volunteer level.

Members, committee members and employees of MORPC are subject to the Ohio Ethics Law and related statutes. It is necessary for members, employees and committee members to be aware of and abide by the prescribed code outlined in Resolution 45-94 which is outlined here.
