2.  Board reviewed ordinance that requires an applicant to appeal a decision of the CEO within 30 days of that decision.  The ordinance allows the board to extend that time period if warranted.  It does not allow the CEO to extend it.  Board requested that the CEO be reminded of this.

 

3.  Board discussed the need for the CEO to provide all data pertaining to a case when the appeal is submitted to the board, including copy of CEO’s decisions septic plans, application and any other information pertaining to the case.  Board requested that the CEO be reminded of this.

The above Items 1. Through 4. were moved for acceptance by T. McCarthy and seconded by J. Gardner.  Approved by vote of 4 to 1.

 

Marge Hommel, Chairperson of the Planning Board, advised the board that the Planning Board is moving a Mooring Ordinance that provided that a decision by the Harbor Master can be appealed to the Board of Appeals.  Chairman Wrzesinsky advised her that our enabling ordinance does not allow this and she should check the state law to see if this is allowed to be placed in the ordinance.  The consensus of the board was that the board has no problem with this as long as state law allows it and it is included in the Board of Appeals ordinance.
