The purpose of the Board of Appeals is to hear and decide appeals of orders, decisions or determinations by the Chief Building Official to the application and interpretation of the Building Code.

Membership of the Board

Members of the Board of Appeals are appointed by the Mayor upon advice and consent of the City Council. The Board Members have long experience in the building trades, including the application of the current building codes in use. Board Members cannot be current employees of Sandy City.

Limits on Authority and Appeals

An application for appeal shall be based on a claim that the true intent of the Building Code or the rules legally adopted under the Code have been incorrectly interpreted, the provisions of the Code do not fully apply, or an equally good or better form of construction is proposed. The Board has no authority to waive requirements of the Building Code.


The Board of Appeals meets only as necessary and requested by appellants. They do not have a set meeting schedule. To Schedule an appeal, contact Scott Marsell, Chief Building Official at 801-568-7263.
