The owner of a license to keep a place where alcoholic liquor is sold or offered for sale has the right to a renewal or reissue of said license at the same place of business that the license is issued to in compliance with the laws of the state and upon compliance with the provisions of the ordinances of the city. If the owner wishes to renew the license at a different location, then he or she shall be required to obtain a special use permit pursuant to the zoning laws in the city for the new location. Such licensee may assign or convey his or her right to renewal or reissue thereof to any person or corporation who upon compliance with the laws of the state relating thereto and with the ordinances of the city, shall be entitled to a renewal or reissue of such license in his or her own name or the corporation’s name. The person to whom the license is assigned shall be required to apply for a special use permit pursuant to the Zoning Code and shall be subject to the same background checks as provided by the ordinances of the city. The Liquor Commissioner, in his or her discretion, may grant the assignee a license to operate the premises on a temporary basis until such time as special use permit is granted pursuant to the zoning ordinances and the background checks is completed. If the special use permit is not granted or the background check is not satisfactory, the license shall be revoked.
