No person shall conduct, engage in, maintain, operate, carry on or manage any business, either by himself or itself, or through any agent, employee or partner without first having obtained a license therefor from the Village.
A license shall be required if any person, by himself or itself or through an agent, employee or partner, is held forth as being engaged in any business, or if he or it solicits patronage therefor, actively or passively, or if he or it performs or attempts to perform any part of such business within the Village. Where two (2) or more separate businesses, separately owned and/or operated, share floor space in the same building or on the same parcel of property, and any floor space is subdivided between the separate businesses, then each such business shall obtain a license pursuant to the provisions contained in this Chapter.
Notwithstanding any provision in this Section to the contrary, no license shall be required of any person for the mere delivery within the Village of any property purchased or acquired in good faith from such person at his regular place of business outside the corporate limits of the Village. (1976 Code §9-3)
Any person charged with a violation of this Section may, in lieu of prosecution for a violation hereof, make payment in accordance with Section 1-4-2 of this Code. (1976 Code §9-15; 1991 Code)
