(a)   Delinquent taxes. No shall be licensed if such enterprise is located on property on which taxes, assessments or other financial claims to the state, county, school district or city are due and delinquent.

   (b)   Improper zoning. No shall be licensed if the location of such enterprise is not in conformance with Chapter 19 or 21 of this code unless such enterprise is a legal, nonconforming use.
