    Sec. 11-149. Appeals.
     
    (a) Whenever the building commissioner shall reject or refuse to approve the mode or manner of construction proposed to be followed, or materials to be used in the erection or alteration of a building or structure, or the fire code official shall reject or refuse to approve a requested modification of the fire prevention code or when it is claimed that the provisions of the building code or the fire prevention code do not apply, or when it is claimed that the true intent and meaning of the building code or the fire prevention code or any of the regulations thereunder have been misconstrued or wrongly interpreted, the owner of such building or structure, or his duly authorized agent, may appeal from the decision of the building official or the fire code official to the board of building code appeals. Notice of appeal shall be in writing and filed within twenty-one (21) days after the decision is rendered by the building official or the fire code official. Failure to submit an application for appeal within twenty-one (21) days shall constitute acceptance of the building official's or the fire code official's decision.
     
    (b) In case of a building or structure which, in the opinion of the building commissioner or the fire code official, is unsafe or dangerous, the building commissioner or the fire code official may, in his order, limit the time for such appeal to a shorter period. Appeals hereunder shall be on forms provided by the building commissioner and the fire code official. (Ord. of 10-28-03, O-03-177, eff. 10-1-03; Ord. No. O-04-122, 9-14-04)
