(A)   Appeals to the Board may be taken by any person aggrieved or by any officer, department, board or bureau of the town. The appeal shall be taken within a reasonable time, as provided by the rules of the Board, by filing with the Clerk/Treasurer notice of the appeal specifying the grounds thereof. The Zoning Administrator shall forthwith transmit to the Board all papers constituting the record upon which the action appealed from was taken.
   (B)   An appeal stays all legal proceedings in furtherance of the action appealed from, unless the Zoning Administrator certifies to the Board, after the notice of appeal shall have been filed with him or her, that by reason of facts stated in the certificate a stay would, in his or her opinion, cause imminent peril to life and property. In that 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, on notice to the officer from whom the appeal is taken, and on due cause shown.
   (C)   The Board shall fix a reasonable time for the hearing of the appeal or other matter referred to it, and give public notice thereof, as well as due notice to the parties in interest, and decide the same within a reasonable time. Notice of the time and place of the public hearing shall be published in a newspaper of general circulation in the county at least 15 days in advance of the scheduled hearing date. At the hearing, any party may appear in person or by agent or by attorney.
