The board will hear and decide on variances to be granted in regard to the zoning ordinance and other applicable state laws. The board will also hear and decide on appeals from any order, requirement, permit decision, refusal or determination from the zoning administrator or interpretation of the zoning ordinance. Recommendations, reports and records from the board are communicated to the city council.
