(A) Any license issued under this chapter may, with notice to the holder thereof and a hearing as hereafter provided, be revoked or suspended:
(1) If, within 12 months prior to the date on which charges are filed, there has been a conviction of any person for any action or activity occurring in, on, or at the premises covered by the license in violation of any provision of this chapter, any other ordinance of the city, or any state statute against gambling, disorderly conduct, or any other offense. A judgment of conviction in any court of competent jurisdiction shall be conclusive evidence of such a violation.
(2) If there shall occur in, on, or at the premises covered by a license any condition which is a nuisance or is obnoxious to the morals and general welfare of the public.
(3) If any person is disorderly in, on, or at the premises covered by the license and disturbs the good order of the community, or the license holder suffers or permits any disorderly conduct in, on, or at the licensed premises.
(4) If the holder of the license misrepresents any material facts as to the kind of business applied for or any other fact necessary or proper to determine the amount of license fee to be paid.
(B) When the Mayor has probable cause to believe that license should be revoked for any of the causes enumerated herein, it shall be his duty to prefer charges against the holder of the license with the City Clerk. The charges shall be in writing, and each charge shall be clearly set out. Within 3 days after the filing of the charges with the Clerk, a notice of the filing of the charges and of the time of the hearing shall be mailed to the licensee at the address shown on the license. A hearing before the City Council shall be held within 10 days after the filing of the charges with the Council. The evidence shall be transcribed and the action and decision of the City Council reduced to writing and recorded in the minute book.
