11-2-56. Stay of proceedings pending appeal--Exceptions. An appeal to the board of adjustment stays all proceedings in the action appealed from, except ministerial or other preliminary acts necessary to allow consolidated appeals on all matters prior to final decision by the board of adjustment, or unless the officer from whom the appeal is taken files a certificate that by reason of facts stated in the certificate a stay would in the officer's opinion cause imminent peril to life or property. In such case proceedings may not be stayed other than by a restraining order which may be granted by the board of adjustment or by a court of record, on application, on notice to the officer from whom the appeal is taken and on due cause shown.
