Section 01.02.050 “Day” Defined

“Day” means a calendar day. A time period expressed in a number of days is computed by excluding the first day and including the last day. When an act to be done requires a City business day, and the last day by which the act may be done is not a City business day, then the last day to act is the next following business day.

For example, if a decision be made on a Wednesday, the first day of the month, and it be provided that any appeal from such decision be filed within ten days, then the last day for filing the appeal is Monday, the thirteenth.
