A. The application shall be accompanied by written detailed plans showing the layout of land to be used, the portion thereof to be improved as required herein, method proposed for improvement, drainage, driveways for ingress and egress, and buildings to be built or existing buildings to be used in the operation of the established used car lot.
The application shall also be accompanied by evidence that he/she has obtained all applicable zoning, use, or site plan approvals/permits required to be obtained prior to operating a used car lot or business in the proposed location in the city. The granting of a city used car sales license is contingent on obtaining all applicable zoning, use, or site plan approvals/permits. The city clerk shall submit all such plans to the city engineer for his/her approval prior to granting of the city used car sales license.
B. Applicant must furnish evidence that he/she possesses a valid state of Idaho used vehicle dealer's license.
C. There shall be a onetime city used car sales license fee set by resolution paid when an application is filed. There shall be no other license fees as long as the lot remains in compliance with city codes. In the event the city clerk determines that the used car sales lot is out of compliance with city codes, the license shall become null and void, and before an applicant may recommence business, there shall be a renewal application filed. There shall be a fee set by resolution paid with the application for a renewal.
No city used car sales license issued under this chapter may be transferred except upon written application by the licensee and the proposed transferee on forms to be provided by the city clerk and the payment of a transfer fee set by resolution. Provided however, the transferee shall be required to furnish any and all information as may be contained in an initial application for a city used car sales license.
