§ 13-3-1-98 VIOLATIONS; SUSPENSIONS AND REVOCATION OF PERMIT; HEARING.
   (A)   If the Mayor believes that a person has:
      (1)   Violated any provision of §§ 13-3-1-1 et seq. or of regulations applicable to permit holders;
      (2)   Made fraudulent, misrepresentative, or false statements in the application for the permit; or
      (3)   Conducted business solicitations in an unlawful manner or in such a way as to constitute a menace to the health or safety of the public; the Mayor shall give the permit holder written notice by certified mail, return receipt requested, that the Mayor intends to proceed to suspend or revoke the permit unless the permit holder requests a hearing. Such request shall be made in writing and filed in the office of the City Clerk within 14 calendar days from the day that the permit holder receives the notice of the proposed action. The notice shall contain a statement of the facts upon which the Mayor has acted. A suspension of a permit shall not exceed 90 calendar days.
   (B)   If a permit holder fails to request a hearing pursuant to division (A) above, the Mayor shall proceed to suspend or revoke the permit. The written determination by the Mayor to suspend or revoke the permit shall be filed in the office of the City Clerk and sent by certified mail, return receipt requested, to the permit holder.
   (C)   When a hearing is requested pursuant to division (A) above, the Mayor shall send written notice by certified mail, return receipt requested, to the permit holder of the time and place of the hearing. The hearing shall be held no sooner than five calendar days nor later than 60 calendar days after the permit holder receives notice of the hearing unless the permit holder agrees to an extended time or the Mayor continues the hearing. At the hearing, the permit holder shall have the right to present evidence as to the alleged facts upon which the Mayor based the determination to suspend or revoke the permit and any other facts which may aid the Mayor in determining whether §§ 13-3-1-1 et seq. has been violated. If, after such hearing, the Mayor finds that any provision of §§ 13-3-1-1 et seq. has been violated, he may suspend or revoke the permit and cause to be filed within ten calendar days after the hearing, in the office of the City Clerk for public inspection, and served upon the permit holder and all interested parties participating in the hearing, a written statement of the facts upon which such finding is based. If after such hearing, the Mayor finds that the ordinance has not been violated, he shall, within ten calendar days after the hearing, give to the permit holder a written statement that no violation was found to have been committed.
   (D)   Any person whose permit has been revoked shall not be permitted to apply for another permit for one year after the filing of the written statement revoking the permit.
