   (B)   The City Clerk shall mail to all licensees of the city a statement of the time of expiration of the license held by the licensee, if an annual, one month prior to the date of the expiration; provided that a failure to send out the notice, or the failure of the licensee to receive it shall not excuse the licensee from a failure to obtain a new license, or a renewal thereof, nor shall it be a defense in an action for operation without a license.
