PUBLIC HEARINGS QUASI- JUDICIAL HEARINGS Public Hearings are the formal opportunity for the Town Council to LISTEN to the public regarding the issue at hand. For land use hearings the Council is required to act in a quasi - judicial capacity. When acting as a quasi - judicial body, the Council is acting in much the same capacity as a judge would act in a court of law. Under these circumstances, the judicial or quasi - judicial must limit its consideration to matters which are places into evidence and are part of the public record. The Council must base their decision on the law and the evidence presented at the hearing. POLICY /LEGISLATIVE PUBLIC HEARINGS A.
