A class A regulatory certificate shall be required of all such establishments unless otherwise specified by this code. A separate offense shall be deemed committed on each day during which a violation occurs or continues. (Ord. 4364, 10-25-1978, eff. 1-1-1979)
B. Multiple Businesses: In the event the same person or entity is the owner and operator of more than one commercial establishment located on the same site and said commercial establishments require, by their varied nature, two (2) or more regulatory certificates or liquor licenses, said owner and operator shall be charged only one fee, that being the highest fee required for a regulatory certificate or a liquor license if the establishment holds a liquor license.
