§ 21-2 Levy Court appointments.

[Adopted 1-17-1989 (P-27)]
The Levy Court has established a number of boards, committees and commissions, the purpose of which is to review various issues important to County government and give advice to the Levy Court on those issues. In order to assure the broadest public participation in County government, it is the policy of the Levy Court that no individual citizen shall be appointed to or serve on more than one such board, committee, or commission.

§ 21-3 Appointment of legal counsel.

[Adopted 9-10-2002 (P-86)]
This Policy sets a requirement for all legal counsel representing Kent County to be appointed by the Levy Court. As the governing body of Kent County, Levy Court routinely contracts for general legal services and appoints counsel for such services. Periodically the Kent County Levy Court, the County offices, and County boards and commissions, are in need of more specialized legal services for matters such as, but not limited to, environmental, bonding, contracts, construction, and insurance matters. All legal counsel representing Kent County Levy Court in any capacity shall be appointed by the Kent County Levy Court.
