(a)   An application for an employee license shall be submitted to the Director of Public Service or a designee on a form provided by the Director of Public Service or a designee. The application may request, and the applicant shall provide, such information as reasonably necessary (including fingerprints) to enable the city to determine whether the applicant meets the qualifications established in this chapter.
   (b)   An application for an employee license shall be completed according to the instructions of the application form, which shall require the following:
      (1)   State the applicant's name and any other names (including “stage” names) or aliases used by the applicant.
      (2)   State the applicant's date and place of birth.
      (3)   State the applicant's height, weight, and hair and eye color.
      (4)   Permission to access and utilize the applicant's photograph currently on file with the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
      (5)   Submit a Webcheck (i.e. fingerprints and criminal record) of the applicant.
      (6)   Describe and identify the location of any tattoos on the applicant's face, arms, legs, or hands, or any other anatomical area that normally would be visible when the applicant is on the premises of the proposed sexually oriented business.
      (7)   State the applicant's present residence address and telephone number.
      (8)   State the applicant's present or intended business address and telephone number.
      (9)   State the applicant's driver's license number and/or state identification number.
      (10)   Submit proof that the applicant is at least 18 years old.
      (11)   Provide a statement detailing the sexually oriented business-related license history of the applicant for the five years immediately preceding the date of the filing of the application, including whether such applicant previously operated or is seeking to operate a sexually oriented business, in this or any other jurisdiction, and whether the applicant has ever had a sexually oriented business-related license, permit, or authorization to do business denied, revoked, or suspended. In the event of any such denial, revocation, or suspension, state the name of the issuing or denying jurisdiction and describe in full the reason for the denial, revocation, or suspension. Attach a copy of any order of denial, revocation, or suspension.
      (12)   State whether the applicant has been convicted of a specified criminal activity as defined in this chapter and, if so, the specified criminal activity involved and the date, place and jurisdiction of each such conviction.
      (13)   The above-required disclosures facilitate the police investigation into the applicant's criminal background regarding crimes of a sexual nature so that the city can determine whether the chapter's civil disabilities provisions apply. Such provisions exist to combat the sex crimes connected with sexually oriented establishments by temporarily prohibiting those recently convicted of such crimes from employment with those establishments. In addition, the required disclosures ensure continuing compliance with the chapter's licensing and permitting requirements.
      (14)   The information gathered pursuant to the above provisions constitutes protected private information and is exempt from Ohio's Public Records Act.
