Appeals to the Board of Adjustment may be taken by any person aggrieved or by a public officer, department, board or bureau affected by any decision of the Zoning Administrative Officer or Building Official in administering the zoning regulations. The appeals shall be taken within a period as provided by state law, by filing written notice with the Board of Adjustment and the Administrative Officer, stating the grounds thereof and paying the applicable fee. The officer from whom the appeal is taken shall transmit to the Board of Adjustment the papers constituting the record upon which action appealed from was taken. An appeal to the Board of Adjustment shall stay all proceedings in furtherance of the action appealed from unless the officer from whom the appeal is taken shall certify to the Board of Adjustment that, by reason of facts stated in the certificate, a stay would, in his or her opinion, cause imminent peril to life or property. In such case the proceedings shall not be stayed otherwise than by a restraining order which may be granted by the Board of Adjustment or a court of record on application or notice to the officer from whom the appeal is taken and on due cause shown.
