Any license issued by the City may be suspended by the City Manager for cause, and any permit issued by the City may be suspended or revoked by the issuing authority for cause. The licensee shall have the right to a hearing before the City Council on any such action of the City Manager, provided a written request therefor is filed with the City Clerk within five days after receipt of said notice of such suspension. The Council may confirm such suspension or revoke or reinstate any such license. The action taken by the Council shall be final. Upon suspension or revocation of any license or permit, the fee therefor shall not be refunded. Except as otherwise specifically provided in this Business Regulation Code, any licensee whose license has been revoked shall not be eligible to apply for a new license for the trade, profession, business or privilege for a period of one year after such revocation.
