(a)   An owner, occupant, operator or agent of property located within the Village who has received an order as provided for in Section 1317.07 may appeal to the Board of Zoning Appeals by filing a notice of appeal with the Zoning Inspector within twenty days of his receipt of the order, specifying the grounds therefore. The Property Maintenance Inspector and Zoning Inspector shall forthwith transmit to the Board all papers constituting the record upon which the action appealed from was taken. The Board shall fix a reasonable time for public hearing of the appeal, giving at least thirty days notice in a newspaper of general circulation in the municipality and at least twenty days notice to all parties having a legal interest in the property. An appeal shall stay all proceedings in furtherance of the action appealed from. The Board may reverse, affirm in whole or in part, or may modify the order appealed from. Any party adversely affected by a decision of the Board may further appeal to the Court of Common Pleas of Wyandot County, Ohio.
   (b)   If no appeal is taken by the affected owner, occupant, operator or agent, or if an appeal is taken and the Board affirms the decision of the Property Maintenance Inspector, and if upon further inspection it is found that the order has not been complied with, Council shall, by resolution, direct the owner, occupant, operator or agent in charge of such property to comply within ten days. Such resolution shall provide that upon failure or refusal to comply with the order, the work required will be performed by the Village with the amount expended therefore to be a valid claim against such owner, occupant, operator or agent and recovered by the Village as an assessment against the individual and/or the property or by suit in a court of competent jurisdiction.
