This Board has three main functions:

2.) to hear appeals to overturn decisions by the Town’s Zoning
Enforcement Officer; and,

3.) to act as a State agent in granting location permits for car repair licenses and auto dealerships.

It does not hear appeals from people seeking to overturn decisions of the Planning and Zoning Commission. They must appeal to the courts.
