The Housing Code relates to interior and exterior conditions of property and buildings, including structural soundness, sanitation, maintenance, interior space requirements, fire safety and rodent/insect/animal infestations. It is applicable to all property - residential, commercial and industrial.
On a per case basis, the Housing Board of Appeals may reverse, modify or affirm
wholly or in part the requirements of the City of Wyoming Housing Code as stipulated by the code official enforcing the code provisions. Action taken must be supported by findings of fact based on conditions, such as unreasonable hardship, property values in the near vicinity, public health, safety, welfare and blighting influences.
Members must read and learn the City of Wyoming Housing Code in order to effectively make decisions. Some field research is necessary related to the requested appeals.
