It is the intent of this chapter that all questions of interpretation and enforcement shall be first presented to the Zoning Officer, and that such questions shall be presented to the Board of Zoning Appeals only on appeal from the decision of the Zoning Officer, and that recourse from the decisions of the Board of Zoning Appeals shall be to the courts as provided by law. It is further the intent of this chapter that the duties of the Village Council, in connection with this chapter, shall not include hearing and deciding questions of interpretation and enforcement that may arise. The procedure for deciding such questions shall be as stated in this section and this chapter. Under this chapter, the Village Council shall have only the duties of considering and adopting, or rejecting, proposed amendments, or the repeal of this chapter as provided by law; approving or rejecting Planned Unit Development projects; and of establishing a schedule of fees and charges, as stated in § 154.385. Nothing in this chapter shall be interpreted to prevent any official of the village from appealing a decision of the Board of Zoning Appeals to the courts, as provided in the Revised Code. Any such appeal shall be made within ten days of the Board of Zoning Appeal’s written decision.
