Adjourn

Board of Adjustment Hearing Procedure:  The Chairman calls the meeting to order, then calls the item to be heard and asks the Applicant or representative present to come to the podium to answer any questions or present any comments.  The Chairman opens the meeting to the public.  Each speaker comes to the podium and states their name for the record prior to making a statement or posing a question.  All questions or comments are to be directed to the board, not the applicant.  After the public comments the Board of Adjustment publicly discusses the information and reviews the findings before making a motion.  All meetings are recorded.
