Mattapoisett’s Zoning Board of Appeals made short work of the two hearings that came before the members last night.
The first application was from Brian and Susan Kvilhaug, 2 Beech Tree Ln. The Kvilhaugs had completed major renovations to the basement of the residence without seeking any permits for electrical, plumbing, and interior renovations that ultimately changed the basement into a family apartment.
Building Inspector Andrew Bobola asked the board to amend the applicants’ application from basement renovations to a “family related” apartment. The board accepted the request of both the applicants and the building inspector, voting to approve the amended application.
The only other hearing was for Earl Scott of 44 Brandt Beach Ave. to modify a non-conforming structure. He requested permission to remove and reconstruct an out-building. This was easily approved, with no issues.
The next meeting of the Zoning Board of Appeals is scheduled for Sept. 19.
