§ 152.320  SUSPENSION.
   (A)   The Zoning Administrator shall suspend a license for a period not to exceed 30 days if he or she determines that licensee or an employee of licensee has:
      (1)   Violated or is not in compliance with any section of this subchapter;
      (2)   Operated or performed services in a sexually-oriented business while intoxicated by the use of alcoholic beverages or controlled substances;
      (3)   Refused to allow prompt inspection of the sexually-oriented business premises as authorized by this subchapter; or
      (4)   With knowledge, permitted gambling by any person on the sexually-oriented business premises.
   (B)   The Zoning Administrator, before suspending any license, shall give the licensee at least 10 days' written notice of the charges against him or her, and shall cause written notice to be delivered pursuant to § 152.336 informing the person of the right to appeal the suspension upon request. Suspension shall take effect 10 days from date of notice, unless within that time, an appeal is filed with the Village Council.  When a suspension is appealed to the Village Council, the suspension will become effective, if and when the Village Council decides that the suspension is proper.
   (C)   A licensee may appeal the suspension of a license to the Village Council in accordance with the procedure set forth in § 152.318(D), or may seek direct judicial review pursuant to § 152.322
   (D)   Any license issued by the village may be immediately suspended by the Zoning Administrator without a hearing if it is determined that the licensee has violated or someone at or upon the licensed location has violated the village ordinance or state law and that continued operation under the license is an immediate threat to public health, safety, and welfare.  Suspension under this division shall take effect immediately, but may be appealed under the procedure described in division (B).
