An appeal shall stay all proceedings in furtherance of the action appealed from unless the Zoning Administrator or designee certifies to the Board after notice of appeal shall have been filed with them, that by reason of fact stated in the certificate, a stay would, in their opinion, cause imminent peril to life or property. In such case, proceedings shall not be stayed otherwise than by a restraining order which may, with due cause shown, be granted by the Board or by the Circuit Court, on application, after notice to the Zoning Administrator.
