§ 23-27.3-127.1.1. Stay of proceedings.
The filing of an appeal by the owner shall stay all actions required by the state building commissioner's interpretation, order, requirement, direction, or failure to act, unless the state building commissioner charged with the administration or enforcement of this code or any of its rules or regulations presents evidence, and the board of standards and appeals finds that upon the evidence presented, a stay would involve imminent peril to public health, safety, and welfare. In such an event, the stay of all proceedings shall be waived or the board may order other action necessary to preserve the public health, safety, and welfare. Before waiving the stay of proceedings, the board shall hold a hearing and give the appellant and state, or local agency claiming that a stay would involve imminent peril to public health, safety, and welfare, notice in writing of the hearing not less than twenty-four (24) hours before the hearing.
