22.10.025 Notification of Right to Appeal; Enforcement; Remedies.

(Added by Ordinance No. 187151, effective September 1, 2015.)

A.  City bureaus shall give notice of the right to appeal to the Code Hearings Officer in accordance with Section 3.130.020.

B.  Where the Code, in accordance with Section 22.10.020, provides that an administrative appeal as defined in Section 3.130.010 is to be decided by the Code Hearings Officer, the Code Hearings Officer shall have the authority to enforce the requirements of Section 3.130.020 and may adopt evidentiary requirements by rule.

1.  If, in deciding such an administrative appeal, the Code Hearings Officer finds that a City bureau has failed to provide notice in accordance with Section 3.130.020, the Code Hearings Officer may order a just and reasonable remedy related to the failure to provide notice, including remanding the administrative act that is the subject of the administrative appeal, reducing any fees and penalties associated with the administrative act, staying the effect of the administrative act pending the outcome of the administrative appeal, or invalidating the administrative act if failure to provide notice materially prejudiced the appellant. Nothing in this Subsection shall be construed to allow the Code Hearings Officer to award monetary damages to the appellant.
