1335.32 APPEALS.
   (a)   Any holder or applicant of a sign permit has thirty days of receipt of any decision rendered by the Administrator in denying a permit or variance to appeal the decision to the Board of Building Appeals or in the event no such Board exists or is unable to meet in quorum, then to another Administrative Appeals Board as determined by City Council for review and final determination. The appeal shall be filed with the Clerk of Council accompanied with a fee of thirty-five dollars ($35.00). The Board shall review the appeal and shall issue its determination no later than forty-five days after receipt of the appeal. Such appeal shall be limited in scope as to whether or not the Administrator abused his or her discretion or was arbitrary or capricious in denying the issuance of the requested permit or variance. Such hearing shall be recorded with sworn testimony. In the event that the person appealing prevails with the Board, the thirty-five dollars ($35.00) fee shall be reimbursed.
(Ord. 012-12. Passed 2-6-12.)
   (b)   The action being appealed shall be held in abeyance pending the decision of the Board. No fines shall be levied during the appeal process. The appeal process does not bar the Administrator from removing a sign in an emergency condition."
