The Minimum Housing Standards Board (MHSB) consists of seven members who shall be residents of the City of Plainview and are appointed by the City Council. The board consists of seven members and meets as needed. The MHSB shall provide a final determination and hear appeals of the decision of the building official on buildings or structures which from any cause endanger the life, limb, health, morals, property, safety, or welfare of the general public or their occupants. Administrative support is provided by the code administration department.
Level of Authority: Recommendations for ordinance amendments are forwarded to the City Council for consideration. On other decisions, the MHSB is the final authority on all matters for which it is responsible. An appeal of an MHSB decision will be directed to District Court rather than the City Council.
