About the Board

The Zoning Board of Appeals hears all appeals for any person that is aggrieved by a decision of the building inspector and passes judgment on that appeal; and approves alternate methods of construction and materials. The board is a quasi-judicial body whose decisions may be appealed directly to the District Court.


Should you require a variance after your original application has been processed you are required to submit a fee of $250.00 and all the necessary paperwork to the Zoning Board of Appeals three weeks prior to a meeting. Meetings are scheduled the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month and your attendance is required.  

For more information, please contact Utility Clerk Susan Johnson at 262-303-4511.
