Citizens Comments: Bill Heim, Chair of BZBA, introduced himself and stated his concerns about zoning and its effect. The meeting is not an open public hearing but is open to the public. It was created by Village Council and its rules are governed by the Supreme Court. They can make decisions in private and their discussions do not have to be public, only their decisions. They invited the Law Director to talk to them and guide them in their work. Mr. Heim is available privately and publicly if anyone has questions.
