The Inspector shall forthwith transmit to the Board all of the papers constituting the record upon which the action appealed from was taken.
   (B)   An appeal shall stay all proceedings in furtherance of the action appealed from unless the Inspector certifies to the Board after the notice of 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 or property, in which case the proceedings shall not be stayed, otherwise than by a restraining order, granted by the Board or by a court of record on application and on notice to the Inspector and on due cause shown.
   (C)   The Board shall select a reasonable time and place for the hearing of the appeal and give due notice thereof to the parties and shall render a decision on the appeals without unreasonable delay. Any person may appear and testify at the hearing, either in person or by duly authorized agent or attorney.
