Three county boards to fill vacant seats

The Delaware County Board of Commissioners hopes to fill open seats on three county boards: the Board of Building Appeals, the Rural Zoning Commission and the Board of Zoning Appeals.

The Delaware County Board of Building Appeals has five members who serve five-year terms. Members must be residents of Ashley, Ostrander, Galena or Shawnee Hills. The candidate should be a registered engineer and/or a contractor experienced with construction and building equipment.

Responsibilities include hearing all residential appeals filed by county residents or businesses affected by decisions made by the county building official; determining whether decisions should be reversed, modified or affirmed; and reporting recommendations for actions to amend the code.

The Delaware County Rural Zoning Commission has five members who serve five-year terms. Members must be residents of Marlboro, Radnor or Thompson townships.

Responsibilities of Rural Zoning Commission members include preparing the zoning resolution, both text and maps; initiating amendments to zoning text and maps; and making formal recommendations on all amendments.

The Delaware County Board of Zoning Appeals has five members who serve five-year terms. Applicants must be residents of Marlboro, Radnor or Thompson townships.

Responsibilities of Board of Zoning Appeals members include hearing and deciding appeals due to alleged error in a previous order, requirement, decision or determination; authorizing, upon appeal, variances from the terms of the zoning resolution; and granting conditional zoning certificates for the use of land, buildings or other structures if they are provided for in the resolution.

Individuals interested in any of these seats may pick up an application at the Delaware County Commissioners Office, 101 N. Sandusky St.; have an application mailed by calling 740-833-2000; or print an application from the Delaware County Human Resources website at co.delaware.oh.us. Applications should be returned to the address above no later than 5 p.m. Dec. 6.
