(a) Suspension-Based Revocation. The Village shall revoke a license if a cause of suspension in Section 7-11-9 occurs and the license has been suspended within the preceding twelve (12) months.
(b) Revocation Criteria. The Village shall revoke a license if it determines that:
(1) A licensee gave false or misleading information in the material submitted during the application process;
(2) A licensee has knowingly allowed possession, use, or sale of controlled substances on the premises;
(3) A licensee has knowingly allowed prostitution on the premises;
(4) A licensee knowingly operated the sexually oriented business during a period of time when the licensee's license was suspended;
(5) Excepting the case of an adult motel, a licensee has knowingly allowed any act of sexual intercourse, sodomy, oral copulation, masturbation, or other sex act to occur in or on the licensed premises; or
(6) A licensee is delinquent in payment to the Village, county, or state for any taxes or fees past due.
(c) Revocation Length. When the Village revokes a license, the revocation shall continue for one (1) year, and the licensee shall not be issued a sexually oriented business license for one (1) year from the date the revocation became effective. If, subsequent to revocation, the Village finds that the basis for the revocation has been corrected or abated, the applicant may be granted a license if at least ninety (90) days have elapsed since the date the revocation became effective. The above time periods notwithstanding, if the reason for the revocation was delinquency in payment to the Village, county or state of any tax or fee, then the license shall be reinstated immediately upon the payment of said tax or fee.
(d) Judicial Review. After denial of an application, or denial of a renewal of an application, or suspension or revocation of any license, the applicant or licensee may seek prompt judicial review of such administrative action in any court of competent jurisdiction. The administrative action shall be promptly reviewed by the Court.
