Zoning and Appeals Board
Ozawkie Zoning and Appeals Board
The Board of Zoning Appeals shall administer the details of appeals from the provisions, ordinances or other matters referred to them regarding the application of the Zoning Ordinances and Regulations.
In exercising these powers the board should determine first whether they should hear an “appeal”, then they may reverse or affirm, wholly or partially or may modify the order, requirement, decision or determination and to that end shall have all the powers of the office from which the appeal is taken and may issue or direct the issuance of a permit or variance, or deny same.
The Appeals Board may also “recommend” that an ordinance or regulation be reviewed and that the changes may be made to the same, rending the appeal moot. During a time of “review” by the City Council, the Appeals Board may withhold their decision.
The Board of Zoning appeals is the final authority, in the City of Ozawkie, on all matters given for their review. No person or corporation or government agency, including the City Council of the City of Ozawkie may overturn or reverse their decision.
