(a) No license issued under this chapter shall be revoked by Council, except for cause shown at a hearing before Council.
(b) Any licensee against whom charges are preferred shall be entitled to a copy of such charges, reasonable notice of the time set for the hearing and representation by counsel.
(c) The following reasons are hereby declared to be sufficient grounds for suspension of a license granted under this chapter:
(1) Facts showing that the applicant made one or more false statements or concealed material information in the application for the license;
(2) Facts showing that the licensee violated or permitted a violation of this chapter or that the licensee committed or permitted any unlawful act to be committed in connection with the licensed premises.

Any member of the Police Division is authorized to deliver such notice of suspension to the licensee or person in charge of the licensed premises and to remove therefrom and deliver to the Clerk such license.
(d) If, upon hearing, Council finds that such suspension was for any violation of law or this chapter, such license shall be revoked, but if Council finds that the charges for which the license was suspended are not sustained by the proofs, such license shall be reinstated by Council. The determination by Council of any question of fact shall be final.
(e) A conviction of violation of any provision of this chapter shall, ipso facto, revoke any license issued under this chapter.
