§ 156.69   BOARD ACTION ON APPEALS AND VARIANCES.
   (A)   With respect to appeals, a motion to reverse, affirm, or modify the order, requirement, decision, or determination appealed from shall include, insofar as practicable, a statement of the specific reasons or findings of facts that support the motion.  If a motion to reverse or modify is not made or fails to receive the majority vote necessary for adoption, then a motion to uphold the decision appealed from shall be in order.
   (B)   Before granting a variance, the board must take a separate vote and vote affirmatively (by a four-fifths majority) on the five required findings stated in § 156.66(B).  Insofar as practicable, a motion to make an affirmative finding on each of the requirements set forth in § 156.66(B) shall include a statement of the specific reasons or findings of fact supporting such motion.
   (C)   A motion to deny a variance may be made on the basis that any one or more of the five criteria set forth in § 156.66(B) are not satisfied or that the application is incomplete. Insofar as practicable, such a motion shall include a statement of the specific reasons or findings of fact that support it.
