If, as a result of such investigation, the applicant's character and business responsibility are found to be unsatisfactory, the application shall be denied.
(b) In the case of temporary businesses not located within a building or enclosed mall, the responsible official shall conduct an investigation relative to the proposed location of the temporary business. If, as a result of such an investigation, the responsible official determines that the proposed location will adversely affect the health, safety or welfare by causing or creating traffic hazard, traffic congestion or for any other reason, the application shall be denied.

Within 30 working days of receipt of an application the responsible official shall either issue to the applicant the requested license or issue a written notice of denial and the reasons therefor.
Any license issued under the provisions of this section shall not authorize any person or persons, except the identical person or persons named in said license to engage in business thereunder and such license shall not be transferable.
