   (A)   Any person or entity that receives a notice of a false alarm or a notice of fees or fines due under this Ordinance may appeal by filing a notice of appeal with the False Alarm Reduction Unit supervisor. The notice of appeal must be received by the False Alarm Reduction Unit within 30 days from receipt of the notice by the person or entity or within 33 days of the date the notice was mailed by the False Alarm Reduction Unit, whichever comes first.
   (B)   If the False Alarm Reduction Unit supervisor denies the appeal, the False Alarm Reduction Unit supervisor shall send written notice of the denial and a statement of the right to appeal to a Hearing Officer.
   (C)   The decision of the False Alarm Reduction Unit supervisor may be appealed to an administrative Hearing Officer. A filing fee of $50.00 shall accompany the notice of appeal. The filing fee shall be refunded if the Hearing Officer finds in favor of the appellant. The failure of an appellant to appear at the appeal hearing shall extinguish the appeal. The Hearing Officer shall issue a written decision within 30 days of the hearing.
