   (B)   Issuing. If an application is granted, the Mayor and City Administrator shall forthwith issue a license pursuant thereto in the form adopted by resolution of the Council and upon payment of the license fee. All licenses shall be on a calendar year basis unless otherwise specified. All license fees shall be prorated on an annual basis based upon the date the application is submitted.
   (C)   Transfer. No license shall be transferable between persons or location. No license shall be transferable to a different location without prior consent of the Council and upon payment of the fee for a duplicate license. It is unlawful to make any transfer in violation of this section.

   (E)   Refusal and revocation.
      (1)   The Council may, in its sole discretion and for any reasonable cause, refuse to grant any application or revoke any license. No license shall be granted to a person of questionable moral character or business reputation.
