(a)   Any license issued under this subchapter may be suspended or revoked by the licensing specialist for the violation by the licensee of any applicable provision of city ordinance, state or federal law, rule or regulation, or for other good cause. The licensee may appeal through the procedures established by the administrative code provisions of this code according to the procedure set forth in § 30.040.
   (b)   If the licensing specialist finds good cause to suspend or revoke a business license, the licensing specialist may take immediate action to suspend or revoke the business license. A license suspension shall be temporary in nature and the terms of any suspension shall be specified at the time of issuance; however, if no other time period is specified for a license suspension, the suspension shall be deemed in effect for the initial maximum time period of 90 days. The suspension period may be reviewed and increased by up to 90-day increments if there is a valid reason for the extension. However, a total period of suspension shall not exceed one year under any circumstances. The business shall be informed of any temporary suspension or extension(s) of the suspension period. A business shall have the right to appeal any suspension, extension of a suspension, or revocation pursuant to the provisions of this code. Any circumstances or events that lead to a license suspension herein can similarly amount to good cause for a license revocation. A revocation may be ordered immediately without a suspension or at any time during or after a suspension.
