This board meets at least once every three months. Members are on call for other meetings to be scheduled as necessary, should appeals be filed. Occasionally, emergency hearings may be required and must be held within three working days of filing. The regular meeting date is established by consensus of the board members. Please check the Meetings Calendar for details about specific meetings.


  • Three members


The purpose of the Board of Appeals is to hear and decide appeals filed relating to actions taken in the administration and enforcement of City Code, Chapter 4, which regulates property standards. Appeals will generally argue that the requirements of Chapter 4 have been improperly applied and/or that the appellant will suffer a hardship due to the strict application of the requirements.

Special Condition

The City Code requires that each member of the Board of Appeals file a financial disclosure statement (on a form provided by the City Clerk) at time of appointment. During each subsequent year of each board member’s term of appointment, the individual must submit an annual statement to the city clerk by April 30 for the preceding calendar year.


Members receive some compensation for being on call for emergency meetings.
