OSSINING, N.Y. The Daily Ossining has begun a series called How Your Town/Village Works to help explain what goes on at Ossining Village Hall and what you need to know. Monday we looked at the village board of trustees and the town council, yesterday we looked at the planning boards for the village and town, and today well look at the zoning boards.
The village Zoning Board of Appeals consists of five members appointed by the board of trustees, and the town zoning board consists of five members appointed by the town council.
The village zoning board generally meets the third Monday of each month, while the town zoning board meets the first and/or third Monday of the month, depending on what applications have been filed.
Agendas for zoning meetings are available online a few weeks before a meeting. If someone has a question on an agenda before a meeting, they can call the village ZBA at 914-762-6232, or the town ZBA at 914-762-8419.
Public comment is allowed during meetings. During a public hearing, there is generally a time limit of three minutes. During general meetings, there is no set time limit.
Meetings for minutes are generally adopted during the following month's meeting, then posted online.
