The Ann Arbor City Council gave first
approval last night to an ordinance cut-
ting back the powers of the Zoning
Board of Appeals.
A public hearing will now be
scheduled on the proposal.
THE ORDINANCE would limit the
power of the zoning board to grant
variances, allowing such action only in
the cases defined as 'minor,'

regarding zoning need to be made by
the elected Council," said Morris. "As

In other actions, Mayor Albert
Wheeler addressed Council concerning
the city's recent investment debacle.
"I'm not happy with what has and
hasn't been done," Wheeler said. "I
promised that there would be no cover-
