      (3)   a licensee or an employee has knowingly allowed possession, use, or sale of controlled substances on the premises;
      (4)   a licensee or an employee has knowingly allowed prostitution on the premises;

   (c)   When the chief of police revokes a license, the revocation will continue for one year and the licensee may not be issued a billiard hall license for one year from the date revocation became final. If, subsequent to revocation, the chief of police finds that the basis for the revocation action has been corrected or abated, the applicant may be granted a license if at least 90 days have elapsed since the date the revocation became final. If the license was revoked under Subsection (b)(6), an applicant may not apply for or be granted another license until the appropriate number of years required under that subsection have elapsed.
