The Baltimore City Council is considering a new charter amendment that would dramatically change who sits on the advisory board of the Office of the Inspector General.

The current advisory board includes the mayor, the city council president and the comptroller, or their designees, as well as the city solicitor, and the deans of the University of Maryland Law School and the University of Baltimore Law School.

District 14 Councilwoman Odette Ramos, who is introducing the amendment at Monday’s council meeting, is proposing a board with no elected officials or their designees, city or state employees, lobbyists, or anyone doing business with the city.

Ramos said the amendment would ensure there is no potential or perceived conflict of interest.
