Appeals to the circuit court shall be made upon the original record in the lower court or administrative agency or tribunal. Upon filing of notice of appeal in an action the original record shall be certified by the clerk of the inferior court or administrative agency or tribunal and transmitted within thirty (30) days to the clerk of the court to which the appeal is taken. If the lower court, agency or tribunal has no clerk, then the original record shall be certified and transmitted by the judge or chief official of the lower court, agency or tribunal. Upon motion for good cause shown, the court may extend the time for the lower court, agency or tribunal to prepare and certify the record. Upon receipt of the certified record, the clerk of the circuit court shall give notice in writing to the parties that the record has been filed.
These Rules 74 and 75 are added to make uniform the procedure on appeals to the Circuit Court where there is no provision by statute. They do not replace any provisions as to such appeals in Title 18 of the Code, or other statutes providing for appeals from administrative decisions; but are added to supply omissions in these statutes where no provision is made for the time to file notice of intention to appeal, the form of the record on appeal, or how it shall be transmitted.Note to 1986 Amendment:
This amendment requires the record to be certified to the circuit court within thirty days, and provides that the court may grant additional time for good cause shown.
