A.  Civil Penalties. Any person or entity assessed a civil penalty may appeal that decision to the Code Hearings Officer under the provisions of Chapter 22.10.

 

B.  Permit/Decal/Taxiplate Denials, Suspensions and Revocations; Exception. 

 

1.  Any person or entity whose permit, decal or taxiplate application is denied, or whose permit, decal or taxiplate is suspended or revoked, may appeal that decision to the Code Hearings Officer under the provisions of Chapter 22.10.

 

2.  If the suspension is due to a failure to timely pay a civil penalty when due, then the underlying reasons for the civil penalty may not be appealed to the Code Hearings Officer.  In that situation, the person or entity may only appeal to the Code Hearings Officer to determine if the Bureau properly followed the notice requirements found in Section 16.40.550.

 

C.  Limit on Number of LPT Vehicles.  If the number of LPT vehicles for a particular LPT industry is capped by administrative rule, then any LPT company whose application to the Board for more LPT vehicles is denied may appeal that decision to the Code Hearings Officer pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 22.10, but only for the purpose of determining if the Bureau and the Board followed the appropriate procedures.  The Code Hearings Officer may not review any factual determinations made by the Bureau or Board.

 

D.  Stays.  If a timely appeal is made pursuant to this Section, the action appealed from is stayed pending the outcome of the appeal.  This includes any civil penalty payment, suspension or revocation.
