The board consists of 7 citizens named by the Council to advise the Council during its deliberations on the annual county budget. Generally the Council names members who have knowledge and expertise in finance and accounting. Almost all of the board's work takes place in April when the Council holds budget work sessions during the day in the Council Chambers.
However, when the Council sits as the Zoning Board of Appeals, the Council members are functioning as a quasi-judicial board whose duty is to interpret the zoning law. In interpreting the zoning law, the Board may only consider the law and facts which are included in the record of the case. If a Council member has outside knowledge of a zoning case, the member may be obligated to refuse to participate in that zoning case. Also, the Harford County Charter, 706(b), prohibits an individual from influencing or attempting to influence, directly or indirectly, a member of the Board of Appeals in arriving at a decision in any pending zoning case.
