The Ohio Ethics Commission issued an advisory opinion on Thursday that clarifies when township trustees with an interest in a wind project can take part in decisions regarding the project's development. According to the opinion, trustees who have a lease option with a wind developer on land they own--or whose family members or business associates have a lease option--can participate in decisions on a wind project that would benefit them as long as they "do not receive any benefits that are selective, differential, or in disproportion to the benefits received by any other option holders." The full opinion can be found here.
