Vacancies shall be filled for the unexpired term only.  The Town Commissioners upon written charges and after public hearing shall remove members and alternate members for cause. The members and alternate members of the Board may receive compensation for their services as designated by the Town Commissioners.


 The Board shall elect one of its members as Chairman and another as Vice Chairman who shall serve for one (1) year.  The Board shall designate one of its members as secretary.  The Board shall draw up and adopt the rules of procedures under which it will operate.  Meetings of the Board shall be held at the call of the Chairman and at such other times as the Board may determine. The Chairman, or in his absence, the acting Chairman, may administer oaths.  All meetings of the Board shall be open to the public.  The Board shall keep minutes of its proceedings, showing the vote of each member upon every question, or his absence of failure to vote, indicating such fact, and also keep records of its examination and any other official action.

The Board only meets on the third Monday at 7:00pm at the Municipal Building located at 114 W. Grubb Street. The Board meets if there is zoning business to discuss.

 Powers and Duties

The Zoning Board of Adjustment shall have the following powers and duties:

a) To hear and decide appeals where it is alleged by the appellant that there is error in any order, requirement, permit, decision, determination, or refusal made by the Zoning Administrator or other administrative officials in the carrying out or enforcement of any provisions of the ordinance.  A concurring vote of four (4) members of the Board shall be necessary to reverse, wholly, or partly any order, requirement, decision, permit, determination or refusal pertaining to property within the corporate limits.

 b) To authorize upon appeal in specific cases such variances from the terms of this ordinance as will not be contrary to the public interests where, owing to special conditions a literal enforcement of the provisions of this ordinance would result in unnecessary hardship.  In granting any variance, the Board may prescribe appropriate conditions and safeguards in conformity with this ordinance.  The Board shall not grant a variance from the terms of this ordinance unless and until the following findings are made:

 c)That special conditions and circumstances exist which are peculiar to the land, structure, or building involved;

d)That literal interpretation of the provisions of the ordinance would deprive the applicant of rights commonly enjoyed by other properties in the same district under the terms of this ordinance.

e) That the special conditions and circumstances do not result from the actions of the applicant;

f) That granting the variance requested will not confer on the applicant such a material alteration that is denied by this ordinance to other land, structures, or buildings in the same district, viewing the special conditions of the land of the applicant as will equitably result in effecting a purpose of this section.

 g)To hear and decide such conditional uses as the Board is specifically authorized to pass on by the terms of the ordinance.

All interested citizens, please request an application at the Municipal Building located at 114 W. Grubb Street, Hertford.
