About Us

The Cuyahoga County Administrative Procedures Act establishes the Administrative Rules Board (ARB) in Section 205.09 of the County Code. The Act governs how County entities may adopt, amend, or rescind administrative policies, rules and regulations in Chapter 113 of the County Code.

Section 113.02(G) of the County Code establishes the ARB’s standard of review, which is to approve or reject proposed rules, amendments, and rescissions on the basis of (1) authority to implement and (2) consistency with County Code.

Membership of the Administrative Rules Board is comprised of the County’s Director of Law, Director of Budget and Management, Deputy Law Director in charge of Risk Management, and two attorneys appointed by the Director of Law for one-year terms. The ARB will meet on a weekly basis during its first year of operation in 2015, then on a bi-weekly basis thereafter. All meetings are open to the public.

The Rules of Procedure for the Administrative Rules Board are available here.
