(A) The City Commission shall have the right, for just cause, to revoke any receipt issued or renewed hereunder, and may in its discretion order the refunding of any part or all of the money paid for the receipt when it is revoked. Any person conducting any occupation, business, or profession after a revocation by the City Commission, shall be liable to the penalties as specified in § 10.99.
(B) If the City Commission desires to revoke any receipt issued hereunder, it shall have the holder of the receipt served with a written notice of its intention to do so, stating therein the cause for the proposed revocation of the receipt, and setting a time for a hearing on the proposed revocation. The notice shall be prepared and signed by the City Clerk, and served by the Chief of Police or any police officer upon the holder of the receipt by delivery to him of a copy, not less than five days before the date set for the hearing.
(C) The hearing shall be held in the city hall, and the holder of the receipt shall have the right to be heard, either in person or by counsel. If after the hearing, the City Commission shall determine that the receipt should be revoked, it shall be revoked, and a continuance to engage in the occupation, business, or profession for which the receipt has been issued shall constitute a doing of business without a receipt. The receipt holder shall have the right to apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for a review of the order revoking the receipt.
