A: It depends on what section of the city code applies. For some appeals of this nature, there would be an "up-the-ladder" process within the city administration. For some other appeals, you must instead file an appeal or a petition in the Circuit Court, which is more technically complex than most non-lawyers can handle. Start by walking into the code compliance office at city hall and asking them what the appeal process is, and what city code provisions apply to both the alleged violation and the hearing and appeal process.
