(a) No member of the decision-making body shall, after an application necessitating a hearing has been filed with the County, solicit or receive any substantive information from County staff outside of the public hearing on said matter.
(b) The provisions of this Section do not apply, however, to factual inquiries made by members of the Board of Supervisors or members of the Planning Commission, matters which have broad application in the County as distinguished from specific application to individual parcels of property subject of the hearing, nor do they apply to these matters which relate to only procedural aspects of the hearing process, such as anticipated dates of hearings or reasons for delays in setting hearings.
