August 9, 2016

MEMO TO:           Mayor Barber and Board of Commissioners

FROM:                  Frank A. Rush, Jr., Town Manager

SUBJECT:           Appointment – Board of Adjustment (1 Vacancy)

With the recent appointment of two new members of the Board of Adjustment, there now remains only one vacancy on the Board of Adjustment.  The vacant seat is for Alternate #2, and is the remainder of an unexpired term that expires in May 2017.

If the Board knows of an individual interested in serving on the Board of Adjustment, it may wish to appoint this individual to bring the Board of Adjustment to full membership.  As you know, the Board of Adjustment is tasked with considering variances and appeals of staff decisions, and operates under quasi-judicial procedures.  Although the Board of Adjustment has not met since November 2011, it is important to have full membership in case a new case arises.    

If the Board is not aware of anyone with an interest in serving, it may be advantageous to advertise for applicants for the vacant seat.
