The City Manager or his or her authorized representative may, from time to time, grant to any suitable person a license authorizing such person to carry on the business of a secondhand dealer or junk dealer, subject to the provisions of this chapter. Such license shall designate the particular place in the City where such person is to carry on such business and no person receiving such license shall carry on such business at any place other than as designated in such license. The Manager or his or her representative shall not grant a license to any person doing or desiring to do a junk business in any residential community where sixty-five percent or more of the property owners within a radius of one City block of such junk business or contemplated junk business petition the Manager not to do so. However, if a person has no regular place of business, a license shall be issued to such person to carry on the business of secondhand dealer or junk dealer either by automobile or truck. Such licenses shall be for a period of one year from the date of issuance, unless revoked for cause, and shall not be transferable.
