5.50.030  Massage and/or bodywork office or establishment, home visit or outcall massage/bodywork service - Permit required.
   A.   It is unlawful for any owner or any other person as owner or operator, to engage in, conduct, or carry on, or to permit to be engaged in, conducted, or carried on, in or upon any premise in the city, operation of a massage and/or bodywork office or establishment or home visit or outcall massage/bodywork service as defined in this chapter, without a valid owner permit issued by the permit authority as required by this chapter.  A separate owner permit shall be required for each office or establishment or service.
   B.   It is unlawful for any owner to permit any massage and/or bodywork practitioner to work in, for, or at a massage and/or bodywork office or establishment, or home visit or outcall massage and/or bodywork service, unless the practitioner holds a valid practitioner permit issued by the permit authority as required by this chapter.
   C.   It is unlawful for any massage and/or bodywork practitioner to work in, for, or at any massage and/or bodywork office or establishment or home visit or outcall massage bodywork service within the city which does not hold a current owner permit issued by the permit authority as required by this chapter.
   D.   It is unlawful for any massage and/or bodywork practitioner to work in, for, or at a massage and/or bodywork office or establishment or home visit or outcall massage/bodywork service, or to perform massage and/or bodywork services for compensation within the city limit, unless the practitioner holds a valid practitioner permit issued by the permit authority as required by this chapter.  Provided, however, that where a massage and/or bodywork practitioner is also an owner, the practitioner shall obtain an owner permit rather than a practitioner permit.
   E.   An owner or practitioner permit issued pursuant to the terms of this chapter shall be valid for a term of one year from the date of issuance.  A permit that has not been suspended or revoked may be renewed for another one-year period, on submittal of a written application and payment of a renewal fee to be established by resolution of the city council.  An application for renewal shall be filed at least 30 days but not more than 60 days prior to the expiration date of the current valid permit.  Except as specifically provided otherwise in this chapter, an application for renewal shall be in the same form, and shall be subject to the same requirements, as an initial permit application.
