Any interested party may appeal a decision of the Rent Leveling Board to the Mayor and Council. Such appeal shall be made within 10 days of the date the final decision of the Rent Leveling Board is received. The appeal shall be made by serving the Borough Clerk, in person or by certified mail, with a notice of appeal specifying the grounds thereof and the name and address of the appellant and the name and address of the appellant's attorney, if represented. Such appeal shall be decided by the Mayor and Council only upon the record established before the Rent Leveling Board.
The appellant shall, within five days of service of the notice of appeal, arrange for a transcript of the proceedings to be made at his expense. The appellant shall thereafter submit to the Mayor and Council eight copies of the transcript within 35 days of the filing of the notice of appeal.
The appellant may request that the Mayor and Council waive the requirement of a transcript. The Mayor and Council may only do so upon the showing that the cost of the transcript would result in an inordinate financial burden and that the record can be completely established through the use of the minutes of the Rent Leveling Board.
The Mayor and Council may reverse, remand or affirm, in whole or in part, or may modify the final decision of the Rent Leveling Board. The affirmative vote of the majority of the full, authorized membership of the Mayor and Council shall be necessary to reverse, remand, affirm or modify any final action of the Rent Leveling Board.
The Mayor and Council shall schedule a hearing on the appeal within 60 days of the receipt of the notice of appeal. The Mayor and Council shall render a decision not later than 95 days from the receipt of the notice of appeal.
