Appeals may be taken to the BOA by persons aggrieved or by any officer, department, board or bureau of the municipality affected by a decision of an administrative official, within 30 days, by filing with the officer from whom the appeal is taken, and with the BOA, a notice of appeal specifying the grounds thereof. The officer from whom the appeal is taken shall forthwith transmit all papers constituting the record upon which the action appealed from was taken. Said appeal shall be filed on a form provided by the Town Clerk.
B. Effect of Appeal
An appeal shall stay all proceedings in the matter appealed from unless the officer from whom the appeal is taken certifies to the Board that, by reason of the fact stated in the certificate, the stay would, in his opinion, cause imminent peril to life or property. In such case, proceedings shall not be stayed, except by restraining order granted by the Board or by a court of record on application and notice to the officer from whom the appeal is taken. The Board shall fix a reasonable time for hearing the appeal and give notice thereof to the parties in interest and the public.
C. Majority Vote Necessary
The concurring vote of a majority of the Board shall be necessary to reverse any order or decision of an administrative official, or to pass or to affect any variations from the terms and conditions of this Code.
