If the application for license is denied or once issued is revoked by the Chief of Police, the applicant has the right to appeal to the City Council by filing a written notice of such appeal with the Chief of Police within ten days after the denial or revocation by the Chief of Police. Upon the filing of such notice of appeal, the application and all papers possessed by the Chief of Police in connection with such application shall be delivered to the City Council and such matters as may be in controversy shall be heard by the City Council at its next regular meeting after the filing of the notice of appeal. The Council shall have the same powers and authority at such hearing on such appeal as are by this chapter invested in the Chief of Police upon suspension. This right of appeal set out herein is a condition precedent to the applicant’s seeking any other judicial relief in a court of competent jurisdiction.
