Outgoing Sand Springs Board of Adjustment Chairman Randy Beesley was recognized with a Mayoral Proclamation at Monday night's City Council Meeting.
Beesley was first appointed to the Board of Adjustment in September of 2005 and has chaired the board since November of 2010.
Board members serve in a volunteer capacity and are unable to receive compensation. They meet on the third Monday of each month and review requests for variances and special exceptions to zoning code.
According to the proclamation, "Beesley has served as a Board of Adjustment Member in a dignified manner demonstrating and reflecting the high character and moral integrity needed to perform the duties of the position to ensure that strict impartiality was maintained to preserve the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of the City of Sand Springs."
Mayor Mike Burdge added that "The Board of Adjustment and Planning Commission are the two hardest boards to serve on, even harder than City Council."
