SEC. 11.5.10. WITHDRAWAL OF APPEAL.
   (Added by Ord. No. 177,335, Eff. 3/20/06.)
 
   A.   Procedures. The appellant(s) may withdraw an appeal of a determination made pursuant to the sections listed in Subsection C. below, provided that the withdrawal is filed with the Department at least fifteen days prior to the public hearing by the appellate decision-maker or appellate body on the appeal subject to the following limitations.
 
   B.   Limitations. The withdrawal of the appeal shall be in writing and does not require the decision-maker to concur. The withdrawal shall be filed with the Department. If the withdrawal of the appeal is received by the Department after the close of the original appeal period, the Department shall notify the same persons who received notice of the decision that was appealed, that an appeal had been filed and was now withdrawn. The notice shall state that the appeal period is being reopened. The reopened appeal period shall run for ten days from the date the notice of withdrawal of the appeal is mailed. If more than one appeal was filed, the appeal period is not reopened unless the withdrawal of the appeal would result in no appeal going forward. The appeal period shall only be reopened once. If the withdrawal is received by the Department before any required public hearing notice has been mailed, then the time for the appellate body or appellate decision-maker to act shall be extended for ten days. If the withdrawal is received by the Department after the public hearing notice has been mailed, then any appeal filed during the reopened appeal period shall be heard on the same date and time as set forth in the previously mailed public hearing notice and no further notice of the appeal hearing is required.
 
   If the withdrawal of the appeal, and the subsequent reopening of the appeal period, results in no appeal going forward, then the withdrawal of the appeal shall be permanent and the decision from which the appeal was taken shall automatically become final at the end of the appeal or reopened appeal period.
 
   C.   Application to Specific Appeal Provisions. This section applies to appeals filed pursuant to Sections 11.5.6, 11.5.7, 11.5.14, 12.20.2, 12.20.3, 12.21, 12.22, 12.23, 12.24, 12.25, 12.26, 12.28, 12.30, 12.32, 12.36, 12.50, 13.01 H., 14.00, 14.5.6, 16.01, 16.02, 16.04, 16.05, 16.50, and Articles 7 and 8 of Chapter 1 of this Code.
