951.13  TERMINATION OF CERTIFICATE OF REGISTRATION.
   (a)   Default Notice Provided. The City through its Department of Public Service shall give written notice of default to a Provider if the City, in its sole discretion, determines that a Provider has:
      (1)   Violated any provision of this chapter or any law, ordinance, rule or regulation of the City and failed to cure; or
      (2)   Evaded or attempted to evade any provision of the issuance of a Certificate of Registration or the acceptance of it, including failure to comply with the indemnification requirements in Section 951.11 of this chapter; or
      (3)   Practiced any fraud or deceit upon the City; or
      (4)   Made a misrepresentation of fact in the Application for a Certificate of Registration.
   (b)   Cure Required.  If a Provider fails to cure a default within thirty (30) calendar days after such notice is served by the City then the City may exercise any remedies or rights it has at law or in equity to terminate the Certificate of Registration.  If the Director of Public Service decides there is cause or reason to terminate the Certificate of Registration, the following procedure shall be followed:
      (1)   City shall serve a Provider with a written notice of the reason or cause for proposed termination of the Certificate of Registration and shall allow a Provider a minimum of ten (10) calendar days to cure.
      (2)   If the Provider fails to cure within ten (10) calendar days, the Director of Public Service may declare the Certificate of Registration terminated.
      (3)   The Provider shall have ten (10) calendar days to appeal the termination to the Mayor.  All such appeals shall be in writing.  If the Mayor determines there was not cause or reason to terminate the Certificate of Registration, then the Mayor shall overturn the decision of the Director of Public Service.  Otherwise, the Mayor shall affirm the decision of the Director of Public Service to terminate the Certificate of Registration. The determination of the Mayor shall be final.
      (4)   If a Certificate of Registration is terminated and the termination is affirmed by the Mayor if appealed, the City may, in its sole discretion, restrict future Certificates of Registration from being issued to the Provider.  (Ord.  30-2019.  Passed 4-22-19.)
