The infighting between the DeKalb Board of Zoning Appeals and the County Law Department continues with the BZA calling for amendments to the County Ordinances to give it more power. The BZA claims it does not get any respect and that the County does not enforce the BZA’s decisions. Complaining that proper County staff are not attending the BZA hearings, Chair Bonnie Jackson said:
If we continually rule in favor of the applicants, staff will begin to show up.
BZA member Bob Lundsten circulated two proposals:
We can’t wait for the county to revise the entire zoning code. This is the fastest and best way to get it done,” Lundsten said. “Commissioner Jeff Rader will bring the final draft to the full board of commissioners as quickly as possible.”
