9-14-11: APPEALS:
   (A)   Authority: The planning commission shall hear and make recommendations to the village board from an administrative order, requirement or determination under this title.
   (B)   Scope Of Appeals: An appeal, in which it is alleged that there is error in any decision made by the code enforcement officer under this title, may be taken to the planning commission by any person or governmental agency aggrieved by such decision or by any department, or officer of the village. Such an appeal shall be taken and filed with the village clerk within twenty (20) days from the date of the action on which the appeal is taken specifying the grounds thereof. The appeal shall specify the alleged error or errors in such order, requirement, decision, or determination. The village clerk shall, without delay, forward to the commission a copy of the notice of appeal together with all the records pertaining to the decision on which the appeal is made.
   (C)   Stay Of Proceedings: An appeal shall stay all proceedings in furtherance of the decision appealed unless the code enforcement officer certifies to the planning commission after the notice of the appeal has been filed with him, that by reason of facts stated in the certificate, a stay would, in his opinion, cause imminent peril to life or property. In this event, the proceedings shall not be stayed unless by a restraining order, which may be granted by the commission or by a court of record on application, on notice to the code enforcement officer and on due cause shown.
   (D)   Hearing: The planning commission shall render a written recommendation on the appeal within a reasonable time, but in no event more than sixty (60) days after the closing of the public hearing, and shall promptly forward a copy of the recommendation to the village board. The village board may affirm or may reverse, wholly or in part, or modify the decision of the code enforcement officer, as in its opinion ought to be done, and to that end shall have the powers of the code enforcement officer. All decisions of the village board shall, in all instances, be final administrative determinations and shall be subject to judicial review only in accordance with applicable Illinois statutes.
