(A)   Any person directly affected by a decision of the enforcement authority or a notice or order issued under this chapter shall have the right to appeal to the Board of Works and Safety provided that a written application for appeal is filed within 20 days after the day the decision, notice, or order was served. An application for appeal shall be based on a claim that the true intent of this chapter or the rules legally
adopted thereunder have been incorrectly interpreted, the provisions of this chapter do not fully apply, or the requirements of this chapter are adequately satisfied by other means.
   (B)   All hearings before the Board shall be open to the public. The appellant, the appellant’s representative, the enforcement authority, and any person whose interests are affected shall be given an opportunity to be heard.
   (C)   (1)   The Board shall modify or reverse the decision of the enforcement authority only by a concurring vote of a majority of the total number of appointed Board members.
      (2)   Any person, whether or not a previous party of the appeal, shall have the right to apply to the appropriate court for a writ of certiorari to correct errors of law. Application for review shall be made in the manner and time required by law following the filing of the decision in the office of the chief administrative officer.
      (3)   Appeals of notice and orders (other than imminent danger notices) shall stay the enforcement of the notice and order until the appeal is heard by the Board of Public Works and Safety.
