Within the limits of the powers set forth in this Code, the Board of Zoning Appeals may reverse or affirm, wholly or partly, or may modify the order, requirement, decision or determination being appealed, and to that end shall have all the powers of the officer from whom the appeal is taken, and it may direct the issuance of a permit or certificate.
   (A)   Any decision by the Board of Zoning Appeals requires the concurrence of four or more members. The Board shall render a decision on the appeal within 30 days from the date of the hearing unless an extended period of time is mutually agreed upon by the applicant and the Board. If the Board fails to act within such period of time, the appellant may determine the appeal has been denied.
   (B)   The Board shall notify the appellant in writing of the decision of the Board, which shall include the reasons for the action taken.
