The liquor control commissioner may revoke or suspend any license issued by him if he determines that the licensee has violated any of the provisions of "an act relating to alcoholic liquors", as amended, or of any valid ordinance or resolution adopted by the board of trustees of the village or any provisions of this code or applicable rules or regulations established by the liquor control commissioner which are not inconsistent with law. However, no such license shall be so revoked or suspended except after a public hearing by the liquor control commissioner with a three (3) day written notice to the licensee affording said licensee an opportunity to appear and defend; provided, however, that if the liquor control commissioner has reason to believe that any continued operation of a particular licensed premises will immediately threaten the welfare of the community he may, upon the issuance of a written order stating the reason for such conclusion and without notice or hearing, order the licensed premises closed for not more than seven (7) days, giving the licensee an opportunity to be heard during that period, except that if such licensee shall also be engaged in the conduct of another business or businesses on the licensed premises, such order shall not be applicable to such other business or businesses.
The liquor control commissioner shall, within ten (10) days after such hearing, if he determines after such hearing that the license should be revoked or suspended, state the reason or reasons for such determination in a written order of revocation or suspension and shall serve a copy of such order within the said ten (10) days upon said licensee.
The said licensee, after the receipt of such order of suspension or revocation, shall have the privilege, within a period of twenty (20) days after the receipt of such order of suspension or revocation, of appealing said order to the Illinois liquor control commission, and upon the filing of such an appeal by the licensee, he may resume his business until such time as said commission shall render a decision either sustaining the order of the liquor control commissioner or reversing said order.
