Application for permits shall be made in writing, on forms provided by the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, to the City Council at least 60 days in advance of the date of the display of fireworks. If an application for a permit is not timely filed as provided herein, the City Council may consider the application only if the applicant shows good cause for submitting a late application. The City Council may, by resolution, establish a nonrefundable fee schedule for the city's cost of reviewing and acting on the application. If such schedule is established by the City Council, the applicant shall submit the nonrefundable fee with the permit application. The City Council may grant, grant with conditions, or deny the permit in accordance with the Act and this subchapter. Notwithstanding any provision of this subchapter, no applicant has a right to issuance of a permit. Nothing in this subchapter shall be construed to limit or impair the discretion of the City Council to deny a permit pursuant to the Act or this chapter. If a permit is granted, the sale, possession, use, or discharge of fireworks for such display shall comply with all terms and conditions of the permit. A permit granted hereunder shall not be transferable, nor shall any such permit be extended beyond the dates set out therein. A permit for a particular display granted by the city under the Act's predecessor shall remain valid subject to its original terms.
