I am a newly appointed zoning administrator for a small village in the state of Michigan. Before taking this position, I was warned by several community members as well as the resigning administrator that there would be problems with our local government not wanting to follow through with written zoning ordinances. Unfortunately, my first meeting has shown just that. What can I do or who can I contact to make sure that our local government is doing what is legally right? Unfortunately, I feel as though I cannot approach our village attorney, as he appears to be one of the "ring leaders." - I just want to do an honest and fair job, I take my endeavors seriously. And right now there appears to be a great deal of discrimination going on with our local government not approving variances for some, but doing so for others, as well as forcing ordinances upon some, but not upon others. Please help - this is a serious matter.
