Dodge County Officials Looking To Fill Two Seats On The Board Of Adjustment

(Juneau) Dodge County is taking applications for a spot on the Board of Adjustment. There is currently two vacancies on the appointed board which is responsible for quasi-judicial decisions, including final decision on zoning appeals, and variances in Dodge County zoning cases.

Board members will evaluate the facts of a case against the standards set forth in the Dodge County ordinances to determine the outcome. County officials say that this process will include reviewing evidence, hearing expert testimony, and lay-person arguments. They add that board members must be unbiased decision makers, removed from politics and outside influences.

To serve, those interested must be a Dodge County resident of an unincorporated area. Appointments are staggered, three-year terms. Officials say legal, zoning or construction knowledge is helpful but not required. Training and education sessions are available.

The Board of Adjustment meets the second Thursday of each month at 9:30am and on the third Thursday at 7pm for the public hearings at the Dodge County Administration Building in Juneau. Members are given $60 per meeting and are reimbursed for mileage.

Applicants should sent a letter of interest and a brief resume or biography to the Land Resources and Parks Department, ATTN BOA, 127 East Oak Street, Juneau, Wi 53039, or email the department at [email protected].
