Would a hearing examiner be more expensive?
A hearing examiner would be paid for his/her time. However, overall time for making decisions is reduced, compared to the paid time necessary for staff to prepare and present materials for a board, commission, or council, and for the board, commission, or council to study the issues and make a decision.
