Building Board of Adjustments and Appeals Details


The board shall consist of five regular members and two alternate members appointed by the City Council. A minimum of four of the regular members should be experienced in at least one of the following areas:
  • Architect or engineer;
  • Electrical contracting;
  • Building construction;
  • Mechanical contractor (HVAC);
  • Plumbing contracting;
  • Fire protection;
  • Real Estate professional

Powers and Duties:

1. To hear appeals of decisions and interpretations of the chief building official and fire code official and to consider variances to the standardized building codes as more specifically described in Sec. 26-251 of Ordinance No. 2010-15. No appeal may arise out of the city's issuance of citation for violation of any of the standardized building codes as the procedure for the consideration and decision regarding citations is solely under the purview and authority of the municipal court. In addition, the board shall have no authority to waive, and is prohibited from waiving, any requirement of the standardized building codes.
2. Recommend amendments to this chapter; any standardized building code adopted by the city council; or any other code, application, or process applicable to the city's review, application, interpretation and enforcement of the standardized building codes with the goal toward addressing any deficiencies, voids, inconsistencies, inefficiencies, or technical errors.
3. To hear appeals, issue orders, and fulfill other duties pursuant to the authority established in Article VII of this Chapter for unsafe building abatement.

Term of Office:

Two years.
No regular member shall serve more than two consecutive full terms on the board without having at least one full year off of the Board between terms; provided, however, if the city council finds that it has not received applications from other qualified candidates, the city council may reappoint an incumbent member of the board notwithstanding the restrictions of this subsection.
