§ 110.17  FILING OF APPLICATION AND FEE PROVISION.
   (A)   Every applicant for a license to maintain, operate, or conduct a massage establishment shall file an application under oath with the chief of police or his designee as provided herein and pay a non-refundable fee of $100 plus the cost of all background checks conducted under § 110.18(B)(5). The application shall be in the form provided by the Village Clerk or the Chief of Police or his designee.
   (B)   The Chief of Police or his designee shall, within five days of the receipt of an application for a massage establishment license, forward copies of such application to the Village Clerk, the department of buildings and inspections, the fire department, the county department of health, and the department of planning and community development. The police department, the department of buildings and inspections, the fire department, the county department of health, and the department of planning and community development shall, within 30 days of the receipt of a copy of the application, inspect the premises proposed to be operated as a massage establishment and make written recommendations to the Chief of Police or his designee concerning compliance with the codes, laws, regulations, and ordinances that each respective department administers. The chief of police or his designee shall thereafter forward his recommendation to the mayor for review and final determination whether to grant or deny the application for a license under this chapter, and shall also provide a copy of his recommendation to the Village Clerk.
   (C)   Within ten days of receipt of the recommendation from the chief of police or his designee, the mayor shall determine whether to grant, deny or hold an application for further investigation, and the village clerk shall notify the applicant that his or her application is granted, denied, or held for further investigation by the mayor. The period of any such additional investigation shall not exceed 30 days unless otherwise agreed to by the applicant in writing. Upon the conclusion of such additional investigation, the mayor shall determine whether to grant or deny, and the Village Clerk shall advise the applicant in writing whether the application is granted or denied by the Mayor.
   (D)   Whenever an application is denied or held for further investigation, the mayor shall direct the village clerk to advise the applicant in writing of the reasons for such action. The failure or refusal of the applicant to promptly give any information relevant to the investigation of the application; the submission of false, misleading or incomplete information; the refusal or failure of the applicant to appear at any reasonable time and place for examination under oath regarding the application; or the refusal of the applicant to submit or to cooperate with any inspection required by this chapter shall be grounds for denial thereof by the Mayor.
