1315.10  STAY.
   The filing of an appeal shall stay all proceedings in furtherance of the action appealed from, unless the official from whom the appeal is taken shall file a certificate with the Board of Building Appeals describing the facts pertinent to and resulting in the action appealed from andstating that by reason of facts stated in the certificate, a stay would cause imminent peril to life or property.  A copy of the certificate shall forthwith be mailed to the appellant at the address stated in the notice of appeal.  The appellant may seek an immediate hearing before the Board.  After the filing of a certificate, proceedings shall not be stayed otherwise than by a restraining order which may be granted by the Board or by a court of competent jurisdiction upon application.  The issuance of a "Stop Work Order" is an exception to this section whereby the filing of an appeal with the Board does not stay the enforcement of such order.
