Can additional types of decisions be assigned to a hearing examiner?
Yes. Under state law, the City Council can assign a variety of decisions to hearing examiners. Some of the most common assignments include decisions for subdivisions and planned unit development applications. However, under the proposed ordinance, decisions for subdivisions and planned unit developments will continue to come to the Planning Commission for a recommendation and to the City Council for a final decision.
