  3. Staff will present all changes from the currently-adopted edition of the code being discussed at that hearing.  Staff will also present comments on the existing amendments to the code in the order in which they would appear in that code.
  4. Staff will continue their presentation unless they are interrupted by the chairperson or another member of the Board of Appeals.
  5. Votes will not be taken on individual code provisions unless it is determined to be necessary by the chairperson or a vote of a majority of the board members.
  6. All hearings are open to the public and are held specifically for the purpose of receiving public comment.
