(a) Appeals to the Administrative Board may be taken by any person aggrieved or by any officer, department, board or bureau of the City affected by any decision of the City Engineer. The appeal shall be taken within a reasonable time, as shall be prescribed by the Board by general rules, by filing with the City Manager and with the Board a notice of appeal specifying the grounds thereof. The City Engineer shall forthwith transmit to the Board all the papers constituting the record upon which the action appealed from is taken.
(b) An appeal stays all proceedings in furtherance of action appealed from, unless the City Manager certifies to the Board, after the notice of appeal shall have been filed with him, that by reason of facts stated in the certificate a stay would, in his opinion, cause imminent peril to life or property. In such case proceedings shall not be stayed otherwise than by a restraining order which may be granted by the Board or by a court of record on application or notice to the City Manager and on due cause shown.
(c) The Board shall fix a reasonable time for the hearing of the appeal, give public notice thereof, as well as due notice to the parties in interest, and decide the same within a reasonable time. Any party may appear at the hearing in person or by agent or attorney.
(1980 Code 153.22)
(d) A fee of twenty-five dollars ($25.00) shall be paid to the City Manager at the time the notice of appeal is filed, which fee shall be paid into the City Treasury for the purpose of defraying the costs of advertising, investigating and hearing the appeal.
