Marion Zoning Board of Appeals Chairman Robert Wedge announced his resignation from the board at their regular meeting on Thursday, November 8 in the Marion Town House. Wedge has been with the board for 16 years.
“You guys are a great team,” he said.
Wedge said his desire to get his Captain’s boating license and contemplation of a second home in Siesta Key, Florida led him to his decision to resign eight months ago. The board unanimously voted for Eric Pierce to be the Interim Chairman until a permanent replacement is found.
The ZBA will also be looking for another member to join.
The only other item on the agenda was a request for a continuance of a hearing for Dale and Laura Briggs. In September, the couple requested a building permit for a lot on County Road, however, their request was denied due to an issue with potential solar panels. The hearing will be continued on Thursday, December 13.
The Marion Zoning Board of Appeals will meet again on Thursday, November 29 at 7:30 pm in the Marion Town House.
