Zoning Administrator Responsibilities

The responsibility of the zoning administrator is to enforce the provisions of the ordinances and, in doing so, perform duties as set forth by the planning commission.  Duties include but are not limited to issuing permits and certificates of occupancy, maintaining filing system, make inspection of buildings or premises in order to carry out enforcement, issue violations, record non-conforming uses, take and record complaints, provide an update/report to council periodically, submit to planning commission an annual report, and make recommendations.

Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA)

The Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) decides appeals and is granted authority in certain cases to waive zoning ordinance requirements where conditions of the ordinance are determined to deprive property owners of the right to develop their property and/or create hardships or excessive takings from a property owner. This may be in cases where it is alleged by applicant that there is an error in any order, requirement, etc. made by the Building Zoning Administrator, Commission, Ordinances or laws, in administering or enforcing provision(s) of the City Ordinance.
