The board of appeals shall consist of members who are qualified by experience and training to pass on matters pertaining to building construction and are not employees of the jurisdiction. Terms are ongoing.
The Board of Appeals is created to hear and decide appeals of orders, decisions, or determinations made by the building official relative to the application and interpretation of the building code. An application for appeal shall be based on a claim that the true intent of the applicable building code or the rules legally adopted thereunder have been incorrectly interpreted, the provisions of this code do not fully apply or an equally good or better form of construction is proposed. The board shall not have authority to waive requirements of this code.
