Zoning Administrator Update
J. Gurr stated Guy Molby is back working again. The Committee discussed concerns if the ZA is
capable of doing the services expected of him in this position. It is questioned if he has the
physical ability to “walk the property” as is expected. No cases have come before the ZBA in
over a year which adds to the concerns.
The Committee stressed again the need for revision of the application for a variance. It
specifically needs to state what section is being appealed, include better drawings of the property
with specific landmarks noted, and ask clearer and more specific questions of the homeowner.
The Chairman stated he would take the Committee’s concerns back to the Planning Commission
and get their feedback.
