A. Adoption Of State Regulations; Application Of Provisions: The revisions of Minnesota statutes sections 349.11 through 349.23 relating to the game of bingo are adopted and made a part of this section as if set out in full. In addition, the regulations of this section apply to the conduct of bingo within the city.
B. License Required; Exceptions: The unlicensed conduct of bingo within the city is prohibited, except as provided in this section for bingo operations of only four (4) times per year or less by an authorized organization. Any organization authorized by law to conduct bingo occasions may do so only after applying for and receiving a license from the council.
C. Application For License: The license application shall state where the games will be played and the dates and hours for which permission to play the game is requested. The application shall be verified by a duly authorized officer of the organization and by the designated bingo manager. No applications shall be accepted by the city unless accompanied by the full annual license fee. (Ord. 1983-1, 1-3-1983)
D. License Fee: The annual license fee shall be established in section 3-1-3 of this code. (Ord. 2017-01, 1-3-2017)
E. Bond Requirements: No bingo license shall be issued until the bingo manager furnishes a fidelity bond in the sum of ten thousand dollars ($10,000.00) in favor of the organization. The bond shall be conditioned on the faithful performance by the manager of his duties. The bond shall not be cancelable, except upon thirty (30) days' written notice to the city. The council may, by unanimous vote, agree to waive the fidelity bond requirement. If such waiver is granted, the license must be endorsed to indicate such action.
F. Suspension Or Revocation Of License: No licensee shall have a vested right in any bingo license, and such license may be suspended or revoked by the council at any time upon a showing that:
1. Any misrepresentation has been made in the license application or any report required of the licensee; or
2. The licensee has violated or caused to be violated any provisions of this section or the state bingo law 1 . (Ord. 1983-1, 1-3-1983)
