2020 Code of Alabama
Title 4 - Aviation.
Chapter 6 - Airport Zoning.
Section 4-6-11 - Appeals From Action of Administrative Agency or Governing Body.
Appeals from action of administrative agency or governing body.
(a) Any person aggrieved by any decision of an administrative agency made in its administration of airport zoning regulations adopted under this chapter or any governing body of a political subdivision which is of the opinion that a decision of such an administrative agency is an improper application of airport zoning regulations of concern to such governing body or board may appeal to the circuit court of the county where such airport is located.
(b) All appeals taken under this section must be taken within 10 days by filing with the agency from which the appeal is taken a notice of appeal specifying the grounds thereof. The agency from which the appeal is taken shall forthwith transmit to the court all the papers constituting the record upon which the action appealed from was taken.
(c) An appeal shall stay all proceedings in furtherance of the action appealed from, unless the agency from which the appeal is taken certifies to the court, after the notice of appeal has been filed with it, that by reason of the facts stated in the certificate a stay would, in its opinion, cause imminent peril to life or property and file bond to indemnify the owner for damages as may be fixed by the court. In such cases proceedings may be stayed upon the filing by the appellant of a supersedeas bond in an amount to be set by the circuit court of the county in which the subject matter of such decision lies on application by the appellant or the agency from which the appeal is taken.
(d) The court may, in conformity with the provisions of this chapter, reverse, affirm wholly or partly, or modify the order, requirement, decision or determination appealed from and may make such order, requirement, decision or determination as ought to be made and to that end shall have all the powers of the administrative agency from which the appeal is taken.
