(A)   Determination of completeness. Within five business days of submission of the sexually oriented land use permit application, the Zoning Administrator shall determine if the application is complete. If the application is incomplete, the Zoning Administrator shall return the application to the applicant with a letter or form specifying the items that are missing. The application shall not be further processed unless and until the applicant submits a complete application.
   (B)   Review, decision. If the Zoning Administrator determines that an application is complete, the Zoning Administrator shall review the application and, within 20 calendar days of submittal of the complete application, grant or deny the permit. If the permit is denied, the denial shall be made in writing, by letter or on a form, and shall specify the reasons why the application was denied, citing the specific provisions of this ordinance or other provisions of the City's ordinances that provide the basis for such denial. If the Zoning Administrator fails to act on a complete application within the 20-day period, the application is deemed denied. Upon denial or deemed denial the applicant may appeal that denial to the Board of Adjustment.
   (C)   The applicant may, at its option, pursue other or additional administrative remedies available under the zoning ordinance; by doing so, applicant shall be deemed to have waived any right to a decision within a particular time period and shall be subject to all of the terms, conditions and timelines applicable to such administrative remedies under the zoning ordinance.
   (D)   Expiration of zoning permit. The issuance of the zoning permit shall be conditioned on the applicant obtaining and retaining a Kenton County Occupational License for the use represented by the Zoning Permit. If a no license has been granted within six months after the issuance of the Zoning Permit, then the Zoning Permit shall expire; provided, however, that the expiration date for the Zoning Permit shall be extended until 30 days after the end of any administrative or judicial appeal of the Zoning Permit.
