In addition to all other remedies provided by law, with or without having exhausted any available administrative appeals, any applicant who is not satisfied with a determination that a certificate of appropriateness should not be issued to the applicant made by the Board may appeal such determination directly to Council by delivering to the Clerk of Council a written petition seeking reversal of the determination within six months after the determination has been made.  Council, on such appeal, shall undertake a complete hearing on the merits of the issuance of a certificate of appropriateness and consider all relevant facts whether or not the same were presented to the Board and determine whether a certificate of appropriateness shall issued upon all evidence presented to it by the parties.  Council shall determine within ninety days of the date of filing of the petition whether  a certificate of appropriateness shall be issued or shall not be issued and if the determination is to issue a certificate of appropriateness, the same shall be issued to the applicant by the Clerk of Council within seven days of such determination.  Such determination shall be by a majority vote of those councilmen present at a meeting at which a quorum is present.
