(a) Whenever the Building Official rejects or refuses to approve the method or manner of construction proposed to be followed or materials to be used in the erection or alteration of a building or structure, or when it is claimed that the provisions of this Building Code do not apply, or that an equally good or more desirable form of construction can be employed in any specific case, or when it is claimed that the true intent and meaning of this Building Code or any of the regulations thereunder have been misconstrued or wrongly interpreted, the owner of such building or structure, or his duly authorized agent, may appeal from the decision of the Building Official to the Board of Appeals. Such appeal shall be in writing and shall be filed within ninety days after the decision is rendered.
(b) A person who has been ordered by the Building Official to incur expense may appeal therefrom within thirty days of the date of such order, except that in case of a building or structure which, in the opinion of the Building Official, is unsafe or dangerous, the Building Official may, in his order, limit the time of such appeal to a shorter period. Appeals hereunder shall be on a form approved by the Building Official.
