543.14  PROCEDURE.
   (a)   If in the opinion of the Building Inspector, a violation of this chapter has occurred, the Building Inspector may mail by certified mail a written notice of such violation to the owner or his or its agent or person in possession.  The owner or his or its agent or person in possession may have thirty days from receipt of notice to correct the violation.
   The owner or his or its agent or person in possession may file with the Building Inspector an application for a permit for relief from the sound level requirements of this chapter on the basis of hardship.  The Building Inspector may grant such permit if he finds:
      (1)   That additional time is necessary for the applicant to alter or modify his or its activity or operation in order to comply with such requirements; or
      (2)   That the activity or operation will be of short or temporary duration and cannot be done in a manner that would comply with such requirements; or
      (3)   That no reasonable alternative is available to the applicant.
   In granting such permit the Building Inspector shall specify the time period that it is to be effective and may prescribe reasonable conditions as he deems necessary in order to minimize any adverse effects.
   (b)   Any owner or his or its agent or person in possession who is refused a permit as described herein or who is granted a permit with conditions attached which the applicant deems to be unreasonable may, within thirty days from such refusal or action, file with the Building Inspector and the Administrative Board a written notice of appeal specifying the grounds thereof.  The Administrative Board is hereby granted jurisdiction to hear such appeal.  The Board shall take final action granting or refusing the relief requested within thirty days from the filing of the appeal.  The Board shall apply the same standards as set forth herein with regard to the duties of the Building Inspector.
   (c)   Any owner or his or its agent or person in possession who is refused a permit or who is granted a permit with conditions attached as described in subsection (b) hereof which the applicant deems to be unreasonable may, within thirty days from such refusal or action of the Administrative Board, file with the Administrative Board and the Clerk of Council a written notice of appeal, specifying the grounds thereof.  Council shall take final action granting or refusing the relief requested within thirty days from the filing of such notice of appeal.  Council shall apply the same standards as set forth herein with regard to the duties of the Building Inspector.
