Duties of the Appeals Hearing Board
There are seven members of the Appeals Hearing Board. Each member serves a term of four years. The Appeals Hearing Board hears code enforcement cases such as blighted conditions, illegal building activity, unsafe and unsanitary living conditions, abandoned, dismantled and inoperative vehicles on private property, neglected vacant houses, weed abatement liens, garbage liens and other matters. The Board also hears appeals of police permit denials or revocations, stop sign appeals, sign removal fees, utility billing and graffiti abatement fees.

The Appeals Hearing Board is quasi-judicial. The City's Administrative Remedies Ordinance provides an administrative code enforcement procedure which is used in lieu of criminal and civil judicial enforcement, including the imposition of penalties up to $2,500 a day per violation. When the Board determines there is a violation it can impose an order requiring compliance, reimbursement of all City enforcement costs, and payment of civil penalties.
