A.   Applications for a zone clearance shall be submitted on a form provided by the director and shall be accompanied by a nonrefundable application fee in an amount established by resolution of the city council for zone clearance applications, which amount shall be set forth in the city's official fee schedule. The application shall be signed by the applicant and either the record owner of the property or the lessor of the premises (if the business premises are leased to the applicant business) where the adult entertainment business is to be conducted.
   B.   If the director determines that the applicant has completed the application improperly, the director shall promptly notify the applicant of such fact and, upon request of the applicant, shall return the application. As a convenience to the applicant, upon request of the applicant, the director shall grant the applicant an extension of time of ten (10) calendar days to complete the application properly. The time period for granting or denying the requested permit shall be stayed during the period in which the applicant is granted an extension of time. Unless the applicant requests an extension of time pursuant to this subsection, nothing in this subsection shall be construed to relieve the director of the duty to make a decision within the time limits set forth in section 10-3-2774 of this article.
