(A) Any license granted hereunder may be revoked by the Council after due notice and hearing for failure of the licensee, his or her servants, agents, or employees to comply with the terms of this chapter and the Council may suspend the license pending the hearing. No portion of the license fee paid into the Treasury shall be returned.
(Prior Code Ch. 1, § 5)
(B) (1) The Council may either suspend for a period not to exceed 60 days or revoke any liquor license upon a finding that the licensee has failed to comply with any applicable statute, regulation, or ordinance relating to intoxicating liquor. Except in cases of failure of financial responsibility no suspension or revocation shall take effect until the licensee has been afforded an opportunity for a hearing pursuant to M.S. §§ 14.57 through 14.69, as it may be amended from time to time.
(2) Lapse of required dram shop insurance or bond or withdrawal or a required deposit of cash or securities shall effect an immediate suspension of any license issued pursuant to this code without further action of the Council. Notice of cancellation or lapse of a current liquor liability policy or bond or withdrawal of deposited cash or securities shall also constitute notice to the licensee of the impending suspension of the license. The holder of a license who has received notice of lapse of required insurance or bond or withdrawal of a required deposit or of suspension or revocation of a license may request a hearing thereon and if a request is made in writing to the Clerk, a hearing shall be granted within ten days or a longer period as may be requested. Any suspension under this division (C) shall continue until the Council determines that the financial responsibility requirements of this code have again been met.
