The decision shall be considered served when it is personally delivered or when a copy of the decision is deposited in the United States mail, in a sealed envelope or package, with postage prepaid, addressed to the party affected by the decision at his or her last known residence or place of business. The decision of the village administrator on such appeal may be further appealed to a court of competent jurisdiction pursuant to the Illinois administrative review act.
