DUTIES (for complete description, see the Municipal Code):
19-49. The board of building appeals shall establish rules and regulations for its own procedure not inconsistent with the provisions of this chapter.
19-50. Where, because of conditions peculiar to a particular building, it would be unreasonably difficult to meet the literal requirements of this chapter, a variance may be granted by the board upon written application therefor stating in writing the reasons why the variance shall be made. A variance may be granted only where it is evident that reasonable safety and sanitation is assured, and may include conditions not generally specified by this chapter in order to achieve that end. The variance may include an expiration date. A copy of the variance shall be filed in the office of the building inspector and a copy shall be given to the applicant.
19-51. Whenever it is claimed that the true intent and meaning of this chapter has been wrongly interpreted or that the time allowed for compliance is unreasonable, the owner, his agent, or the occupant, as the case may be, may file a notice of appeal from a decision or order of the building inspector to the board of building appeals. Such notice shall be in writing and filed within ten (10) days after the decision or order of the building inspector has been made.
19-52. The board of building appeals, when appealed to, may modify the decision or order of the building inspector. Its decision shall be final, subject, however, to such remedy as any aggrieved person may have at law or in equity.
