Appeals to City Council
The Appeal Process
The City’s Municipal Code includes an appeal procedure that provides for the appeal of decisions, determination or actions of any agency of the city to the City Council. Per Municipal Code 18.12.070 an appeal must be filed within 14 days after the issuance of the decision, determination, or action by the Director of Development Services or Development Review Plan Board. Upon receipt of a timely filed appeal, the City Clerk shall forward the appeal to the City Council including any evidence upon which the decision was made. Notice of any public hearing shall be given in the manner required by section 18.212.080. (Ord. 1170§ 3, 2007: Ord. 662 § 1 (part), 1979: Ord. 37 § 614, 1961)
The City Clerk shall give notice of the time and place of any public hearing set by the City Council, in the same manner as was given for the hearing or action by the agency; provided, that written notice shall be sent to the appellant and to all persons who request such notice. The City Council may provide for such additional notice as it finds suitable. (Ord. 662 § 1 (part), 1979: Ord. 37 § 616, 1961)
