(A) A variance may be granted by the Code Enforcement Board upon written application therefor. Where, because of conditions peculiar to a particular structure, it would be unreasonably difficult to satisfy the literal requirements of this chapter.
(B) The application shall state in writing the reasons why the variance should be made.
(C) A variance may be granted only where it shall be evident that reasonable safety and sanitation is assured, and may include conditions not generally specified by this section in order to achieve that end, and may include an expiration date.
(D) The variance shall not become effective until all conditions are agreed to by the applicant. If not issued within thirty (30) days after written application is made to the Code Enforcement Board, the applicant shall be given a written statement of reason why the variance cannot be granted, provided that no application shall be considered after a structure shall have been condemned as unsafe or unfit unless the owner shall have made a reasonable attempt to effect the ordered remedies.
