§ 223-186. General powers.
[Amended 04/07/09 by Ord. No. 09-02]
A. The Board shall have the following powers:
(1) To hear and decide appeals where it is alleged there is an error in any order, requirement, decision, or determination made by an administrative official in regard to the enforcement of this chapter, Chapter 103, or Chapter 134. [Amended 04/07/09 by Ord. No. 09-02]
(2) To hear and decide conditional uses. [Amended 04/07/09 by Ord. No. 09-02]
(3) To authorize, upon appeal in special cases, such variance from the terms of the ordinance as will not be contrary to the public interest, where owing to special conditions, the enforcement of the provisions of this chapter will result in unwarranted hardship and injustice and which will most nearly accomplish the purpose and intent of the regulations of this chapter.
B. In exercising the above-mentioned powers, the Board may, in conformity with the provisions of law and this chapter and amendments thereto, reverse or affirm, wholly or partly, or may modify the order, requirement, decision, or determination appealed from, and may make such order, requirement, decision, or determination as ought to be made.
C. The Board is also empowered to adopt and promulgate such rules and regulations as it shall deem necessary in the conduct of its hearings and the issuance of its decisions or testimony pertaining to its hearings.
