The LBBCA hears and decides appeals of orders, decisions, and determinations made by code officials relative to the applications and interpretations of various technical codes. The LBBCA consists of six (6) members appointed by the County Board. All hearings are open meetings, and the appellant, the appellant’s representative, the locality’s representative, and any person whose interests are affected by the building official’s decision have an opportunity to be heard. The chairperson has the power and duty to direct the hearing, rule upon the acceptance of evidence, and oversee the record of all proceedings.
The LBBCA has the power to uphold, reverse, or modify the decision of the official by a concurring vote of a majority of those present. Decisions shall be final if no further appeal is made. Decisions are made by resolution signed by the chairperson and retained as part of the record of the appeal. Copies of the resolution will be sent to all parties by certified mail.
