(a) Any person whose initial request for a permit is denied shall have a right to a hearing before either the Board of Appeals, or the Battle Creek City Commission, depending upon the basis for the denial as specified below, provided a written request for a hearing is filed with the Administrator within ten days following such denial. Failure to request a hearing within this time frame shall result in a final decision.
(b) Body before whom a hearing is requested:
(1) Board of Appeals shall conduct the hearing if the denial is based upon a violation of the Property Maintenance Code, or any other applicable regulatory code.
(2) Battle Creek City Commission shall conduct the hearing if the denial is based upon a violation related to something other than the Property Maintenance Code or other applicable regulatory code.
(c) In addition to the information required in this chapter, an applicant whose application for a permit under this chapter was denied by the Administrator should be prepared to submit and discuss any additional information required by the body before whom the appeal will be considered for the appeal hearing. The body before whom the appeal will be considered shall have the right to reverse, modify, or affirm and sustain any denial to issue a permit.
