(A) Conditions. Any license issued for the operation of a poolroom or billiard room may be revoked or suspended if any of the following conditions exist or occur:
(1) If the holder of any license has knowingly made any material misstatement in his application for the license;
(2) If the holder of any license has violated the provisions of the license or the provisions of this chapter governing the operation of poolrooms and billiard rooms.
(3) If any licensee has permitted any minor to play at or remain in such poolroom or billiard room in violation of the provisions of this chapter, or if any minor is employed to work in or about such poolroom or billiard room.
(4) If any conditions then exist which would have been grounds for denial of the application for the license;
(5) If it appears that the continued opera-tion, maintenance or conduct of such poolroom or billiard room would not comport with the public welfare.
(B) Hearing. No license shall be revoked for any cause until a public hearing has been held thereon by the City Manager, and the licensee has been given five days' notice in writing of the time and place of such hearing. Such notice may be given by depositing the same in the United States mail, postage prepaid, directed to the licensee at the address stated in his application or by delivering the same to licensee personally. Any license may, however, be suspended by the City Manager pending the holding of a public hearing as provided above, by the City Manager causing a written notice of such temporary suspension to be delivered to licensee personally or by depositing a copy of such notice of temporary suspension in the United States mail, postage prepaid, directed to the licensee at the address given in the application.
(C) Action. At the conclusion of such hearing, the City Manager shall revoke any such license if he finds any of the foregoing grounds to exist, and, if he finds none of the foregoing grounds to exist he shall reinstate the license.
