Code Board of Appeals
The Village of Ossining is considering significant changes to its code enforcement process. Among the changes is the establishment of a Code Board of Appeals (“CBA”). The CBA will have five members appointed by the Village Manager. Each member will serve without compensation for a term of two years which term can be extended. The Village’s Building Inspector and/or Assistant Building Inspector will serve as an ex officio member without a vote. At least one member of the CBA shall have experience in the construction trades and/or property maintenance. The CBA will hear appeals from decisions/orders involving the interpretation and/or enforcement of provisions of Chapter 162 (Housing/Property Maintenance and Building Code Administration) and Chapter 95 (Unsafe Buildings and Structures and Demolition Code of the Village of Ossining).
