The Board of Ethics was established by the Local Law No. 6 of 2021, referred to as the Warren County Ethics Disclosure Law, which enacted the Code of Ethics to establish “clear and reasonable standards of ethical conduct” to govern all County officers and employees.
The Code of Ethics also established the Board of Ethics for Warren County which serves as an advisory board comprised of three members, with one member being an elected officer, appointed officer, or employee for Warren County, the second member shall be an elected official, appointed officer, or employee from a local municipality, and the third member being a member of the public who is not a member of the first or second categories above (not a County or municipal officer or employee).
