It was <br />suggested that the County Administrator be included in this discussion. Staff agreed to follow up and <br />confirm the availability of the Prosecutor's Office and County Administrator. <br /> <br />NEW BUSINESS <br /> <br />RAY AND LIANN VINES RULING: Larry Fay said that the Department issued a permit this <br />week after the Superior Court ruled in favor of Mr. Vines. Larry Fay agreed to provide the Board with a <br />copy of the opinion. Procedurally, the Health Department and Board of Health's actions were in line. <br />The Court looked to whether the zoning code was clear and explicit and agreed with Mr. Vines' attorney <br />that the Planning Department should not have considered the opinion offered by the hearing examiner in <br />another case. In the absence of an explicit policy in the zoning code, there was no prohibition for <br />withholding the permit. He indicated that while there was a violation of covenants, the neighbors would <br />have to pursue the case as a civil issue. <br />
