North Judson Board Receives BZA Recommendation

A North Judson man has the blessing of the town’s board of zoning appeals to rebuild a Weninger Street home, but he still needs to obtain a building permit. Town council members discussed the recent action to grant a variance to Jason Kersting during their Monday meeting, but town attorney Rachel Arndt advised their approval of the BZA’s action is not required. A 600 square-foot rental home owned by Kersting was destroyed by a February fire. North Judson’s current zoning ordinance requires a variance in order to construct a house that small.
