REQUIRED FOR ALLWhite County Board of Zoning Appeals - Civil Zoning Violations - Revised April 30, 2013
I understand that, should my building project deviate from what I have submitted in my building permit application, or should I not meet building setbacks as shown on my site plan, etc., I may be subject to a civil zoning violation investigation. I understand that a civil zoning violation may result in fines as shown below.
The following fine schedule shall be applied if a civil zoning violation citation has been issued. The Executive Director, on behalf of the Area Plan Commission, may issue an immediate fine of no less than $10.00 and no more than $300.00. The violator will receive written notice of the fine and be given thirty (30) days for payment unless arrangements acceptable to the Executive Director are made otherwise. If payment is not received within the time frame established, a late fee of $50.00 per month will be added to the fine. This fine will remain in place whether the violator corrects the violation or abates the violation as prescribed by Chapter 13 of the White County Zoning Ordinance. If the violator wishes to contest the fine, the violator must appeal as provided for in Chapter 13 of the White County Zoning Ordinance. The appeal will be scheduled to be heard before the Area Board of Zoning Appeals. The Area Board of Zoning Appeals reserves the right to increase, decrease, or remove a fine depending on evidence presented.
