[Amended 12-26-1978 by Ord. No. 1337-78]
The City Council shall appoint a Zoning Administrative Officer to enforce the provisions of this chapter. It shall be his or her duty to examine all applications for permits, issue permits only for construction and uses which are in accordance with the requirements of this chapter, record and file all applications for permits with any accompanying plans and documents and make such reports as Council may require. Permits for construction and uses which are a conditional use or which are a variance to requirements of this chapter shall be issued only upon order of the Planning Board or the Board of Adjustment, whichever Board has jurisdiction. Nothing herein contained shall require any change in plans for construction of a lawful use for which a building permit has been issued during the time period when such building permit remains valid.
A permit shall be required prior to the erection or structural alteration of any building, structure or portion thereof, and prior to the use or change in use of a building or land and prior to the change or extension of a nonconforming use.
Applications for permits shall be made in writing to the Zoning Administrative Officer on such forms as may be furnished by the City. Such application shall contain all information necessary for the Zoning Administrative Officer to ascertain whether the proposed erection, alteration, use or change in use complies with the provisions of this chapter.
Permits shall be granted or refused within 10 days after the written application has been filed with the Zoning Administrative Officer. Upon compliance of the erection or alteration of any building or portion thereof authorized by any permit and prior to occupancy or use, the holder of such permit shall notify the Zoning Administrative Officer of such completion. No permit shall be considered complete or permanently effective until the Zoning Administrative Officer has certified that the work has been inspected and approved as being in conformity with the provisions of this chapter and other applicable ordinances. All applications with accompanying plans and documents shall become a public record.
A temporary permit may be authorized by City Council upon recommendation by the Board of Adjustment for a nonconforming structure or use which it deems beneficial to the public health or general welfare or which it deems necessary to promote the proper development of the community, provided that such nonconforming structure or use shall be completely removed upon expiration of the permit without cost to the City. Such a permit shall be issued for a specified period of time not exceeding one year and may be renewed annually for an aggregate period of not more than three years.
[Amended 12-26-1978 by Ord. No. 1337-78]
Fees for permits shall be paid in accordance with a fee schedule to be adopted by City Council, and all such fees shall be paid into the City treasury. Each applicant for an appeal, conditional use or variance shall, at the time of making application, pay a fee in accordance with the aforementioned fee schedule for the cost of advertising and mailing notices as required by this chapter, the Municipal Land Use Law, the rules of the Board of Adjustment and the rules of the Planning Board.
