§ 53.12  APPEALS.
   (A)   Any person aggrieved by the action or inaction of the enforcement agent related to this chapter may appeal to the Grand Traverse County Construction Code Board of Appeals.  All requests for appeal shall be filed in writing within 30 days of the action or inaction appealed from and shall include the basis of the appeal.  In considering any such appeal, the Board may grant a variance from the terms of this chapter so as to provide relief, in whole or in part, from the action being appealed, but only upon finding that both of the following requirements are met:
      (1)   The application of this chapter’s provision(s) being appealed will present or cause practical difficulties  for a development or development site; provided, however, that practical difficulties shall not include the need for the developer to incur additional reasonable expenses in order to comply with this chapter; and
      (2)   The granting of the relief requested will not substantially prevent nor result in less effective management of storm water runoff.
   (B)   The filing of an appeal does not preclude other remedies available to either party, nor does it act as a stay of any order from the enforcement agent for the installation of measures or controls to reduce or eliminate storm water runoff pending the outcome of appeal.
