The Ethics Board recommends that a village board member not participate in
official discussions, deliberations, and votes with respect to legislation
affecting his or her business unless the action affects a whole class of similarly
situated interests, the board member’s interest is insignificant when
compared to all affected interests, and the action’s effect on the board members’
private interest is neither significantly greater nor less than upon other
interests affected by the act.

The village board member ought not to participate in quasi-judicial deliberations
or decisionmaking affecting his or her own business or competing
businesses. OEB 92-20
