   (A)   The Board of Adjustment shall decide any appeal before it in compliance with the procedures set out in its duly adopted rules of procedure.
   (B)   A motion to deny a variance may be made on the basis that any one or more of the criteria set forth for determining a variance 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. This motion is adopted as the Board’s decision if supported by more than one-fifth of the Board’s membership (i.e., two or more Board members).
   (C)   Before granting a variance, the Board must take a separate vote and vote affirmatively by a four-fifths majority on each of the required findings set forth in § 31.09. Insofar as practicable, a motion to make an affirmative finding on each of the requirements set forth in § 31.09 shall include a statement of the specific reasons or findings of fact supporting such motion.
