§ 23-27.3-127.2.2. Stay of proceedings.
Entry of an appeal by the aggrieved party shall stay all proceedings in furtherance of the action or failure to act appealed from, unless the state or local agency or any person charged with the administration or enforcement of this code or any of its rules or regulations presents evidence and the board finds that, upon the evidence presented, a stay would involve imminent peril to public health, safety, and welfare. In such an event, a stay of all proceedings shall be waived or the board may order other action necessary to preserve public health, safety, and welfare. Before waiving the stay of proceedings the board shall hold a hearing and give the appellant, 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.
