A.   Granting: The Council may grant any application for the period of the remainder of the then current license year or for the entire ensuing license year. Failure to pay any portion of a fee when due shall be cause for revocation. No license fee shall be refundable upon revocation or voluntarily ceasing to carry on the licensed activity. All applications, including proposed license periods, must be consistent with this chapter.
   B.   Issuing: If an application is approved, the City Clerk shall forthwith issue a license pursuant thereto in the form prescribed by the Council, payment of the appropriate license fee, and approval of the bond or insurance as to form and surety or carrier, if required. All licenses shall be on a yearly basis unless otherwise specified herein as to particular businesses. Unless otherwise herein specified, license fees shall be prorated on the basis of one-twelfth (1/12) for each month or part thereof remaining in the then current license year. Provided, that for licenses where the fee is less than one hundred dollars ($100.00) a minimum license fee equal to one-half (1/2) of the annual license fee shall be charged. Except as to licenses which are specifically City-wide, licenses shall be valid only at one location and on the premises therein described.
   C.    Transfer: Unless otherwise provided herein, no license shall be transferable between persons or to a different location. It is unlawful to make any transfer in violation of this subsection.
   D.    Termination: Licenses shall terminate only by expiration or revocation.
   E.    Refusal And/Or Revocation: The Council may, for any reasonable cause, refuse to grant any application, or revoke any license. No license shall be granted to a person of questionable moral character or business reputation. Before revocation of any license, the Council shall give notice to the licensee and grant such licensee opportunity to be heard. Notice to be given and the exact time of hearing shall be stated in the resolution calling for such hearing. Grounds for revocation may be, but are not limited to, any of the following: 1) that the licensee suffered or permitted illegal acts upon licensed premises; 2) that the licensee had knowledge of such illegal acts but failed to report the same to police; 3) that the licensee failed or refused to cooperate fully with police in investigating such alleged illegal acts; or, 4) that the activities of the licensee created a serious danger to public health, safety, or welfare.
   F.    Duplicate License: Duplicates of all original licenses may be issued by the City Clerk, without action by the Council, upon licensee's affidavit that the original has been lost, and upon payment of a fee in an amount adopted by resolution of the Council for issuance of the duplicate. All duplicate licenses shall be clearly marked "duplicate". (1988 Code § 6.03)
