Town ZEO's who answer to the BO

Our planner is inquiring as to any Town's which the Zoning Enforcement Officer answers directly to the Building Official. If anyone is aware of a Municipality in which this is the case, would you please let me know? Thanks.

ByLaws

Reading the proposed ByLaws revisions, I find there is currently no requirement for how and when Notice is given; for meetings or other date-specific events. Such Notice (other than Emergency), found in many ByLAws, would have a legally sufficient time for delivery noted.

It would be a welcome addition to provide for notice if that is possible to consider in this revision:

a) Electronically, where one or more email addresses are recognized in personal information supplied; OR
