Sec. 20-11-9. Appeal procedure--Waivers.

(a) The applicant may appeal to the city council the refusal to consider a late application, the denial or conditional approval of a permit, any condition imposed on a permit not required by state or federal law, or a determination that the applicant’s insurance coverage does not comply with the requirements specified in Section 20-11-12 of this article.
