The board of appeals has jurisdiction to hear and decide the following:
1. Appeals: Applications brought by aggrieved persons from interpretations of the village code made by the building inspector or from other determinations made by him.
2. Interpretations: Applications brought directly to the board of appeals by any local agency for interpretations of provisions of the village code.
3. Variances: Applications brought by persons for variances from the strict application of provisions of the village code.
4. Special permits: Applications brought by persons for special permits.
Members are appointed by the Mayor with the consent of the Village Board to five years terms.
The ZBA schedules meetings by request of  the Code Enforcement Officer and are held the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month.
