The notice of hearing shall be sent by first class mail to the applicant within 10 days of filing a timely notice of appeal.
(c) The City Manager or designee shall review the written record and allow testimony to be given. After all verbal testimony has been reviewed, the City Manager or designee shall render a written decision within 10 working days from the date the matter is submitted for decision. The action of the City Manager or designee shall be final and conclusive, subject only to applicable court review.
