Duties of the Board of Adjustments
The duties of the Board of Adjustments includes:
Deciding on appeals of decisions made by the Zoning Official
Hearing and deciding on special exceptions/conditional use permits
Authorizing variances from the Zoning Code
The City Council may remand a decision back to the Board if they do not agree with the decision. However, after the Board has reviewed the issue under the remand, whatever their final outcome is would be considered the city's final decision. If after that the final decision is appealed, the issue must be reviewed by a court of record in the manner provided by state law.
