(a) Any person affected by any notice which has been issued in connection with the enforcement of any provision of this chapter may request and shall be granted a hearing on the matter before the Board of Zoning Appeals; provided that such person shall file in the office of the Service Director a written petition requesting such hearing and setting forth a brief statement of the grounds therefor within fourteen days after the day the notice was served.
(b) Upon receipt of such petition the Service Director shall set a time and place for such hearing and shall give the petitioner written notice thereof. At such hearing the petitioner shall be given an opportunity to be heard and to show why such notice should be modified or withdrawn. The hearing shall be commenced not later than twenty days after the day on which the petition was filed; provided that upon application of the petitioner, the Service Director may postpone the date of the hearing for a reasonable time beyond such twenty day period, if in his judgment the petitioner has submitted a good and sufficient reason for such postponement. After such hearing the Board shall sustain, modify or withdraw the notice, depending upon their finding as to whether the provisions of this chapter have been complied with. If the Board sustains or modifies such notice, it shall be deemed to be an order. Any notice served pursuant to Section 1458.02 shall automatically become an order if a written petition for a hearing is not filed in the office of the Service Director within fourteen days after such notice is served. The proceedings at such hearing, including the findings and decision of the Board shall be summarized, reduced to writing, and entered as a matter of public record in the office of the Service Director. Such record shall also include a copy of every notice or order issued in connection with the matter. Any person aggrieved by the decision of the Board may seek relief therefrom in any court of competent jurisdiction, as provided by the laws of this State.
