Title
An ordinance relating to the refunding of administrative review appeals board filing fees.
Sections
81-1.5 rc
Analysis
Currently, the $25 fee to file an appeal with the administrative review appeals board is refundable only if the city department responsible for the action being appealed determines that the appeal is unnecessary because the action was undertaken by the department in error.  This ordinance provides that the filing fee shall also be refunded if the department waives, cancels or rescinds the charge or other penalty against the appellant or appellant's property.
Body
The Mayor and Common Council of the City of Milwaukee do ordain as follows:
 
Part 1.  Sections 81-1.5 of the code is repealed and recreated to read:
 
81-1.5.  Administrative Review Appeals Board.  A fee of $25 is required to file an appeal with the administrative review appeals board.  This fee shall not be refunded once an appeal is filed unless either of the following is true:
 
1.  It has been determined by a city department that the appeal is not necessary because the action for which the appeal was filed was undertaken by that department in error.
 
2.  The department responsible for the action being appealed waives, cancels or rescinds the charge or other penalty against the appellant or appellant's property.
(See s. 320-11.)
