Notwithstanding those requirements set out in Section 111, Means of Appeal, of the International Property Maintenance Code such requirements shall not apply to property maintenance violations issued under this Chapter. In the place of Section 111 shall be the following for purposes of appeals:
Any person interested, who may be aggrieved by an order or notice of the code official made pursuant to this chapter, may, within twenty days from the date of service of such order or notice, appeal to the Howell City Council by filing, with the code official from whom the appeal is taken and with the City Clerk, a notice of appeal, in writing, specifying the grounds thereof. The code official shall forthwith transmit to Council all papers constituting the record upon which the action appealed from was taken. An appeal stays all proceedings in furtherance of the action appealed from, unless the code official from whom the appeal is taken certifies to Council, after the notice of the appeal has 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, health and property. In such a case, proceedings shall not be stayed otherwise than by a restraining order granted by Council or by a court of record. Any person, whether or not a previous party of the appeal, owner, agent or occupant interested, who may feel aggrieved by an order or notice of the code official shall have the right to apply to the appropriate court for a writ of certiorari to correct errors of law. Application for review shall be made in the manner and time required by law following the filing of the decision in the office of the Howell City Clerk.
