Please note that if you simply fax, mail, or email your application, you do not have a hearing date and do not have a case filed with the Board of Adjustment. Filing fees must be paid before your case is officially filed with our office.
If you are filing your case in person, we will send you to the cashier to pay the filing fee. If you are filing remotely, we will have the cashier get in touch with you to obtain payment.
The cashier accepts Visa, MasterCard and Discover Card, Cash and personal checks. Checks must be made payable to "Manager of Finance".

It is also possible to have your initial filing submitted by mail. Please contact our staff about this process.
The Application can either be printed out and completed by hand, or you can type directly onto the form and print it from your computer.
