§ 70-01  License Required.
   (A)   It shall be unlawful for any person, whether as principal or agent, clerk or employee, either for himself or another person, or for any body corporate, or as an officer of any corporation or as a member of any firm or copartnership, or nonprofit organization or otherwise, to practice, commence, transact, or carry on any trade, calling, occupation or business in this subchapter specified without first having procured a license from the city to do so. It shall be considered a separate violation of this subchapter for each and every day that such business is practiced, transacted or carried on without such a license. The granting of a license is not to be deemed as evidence or proof that the licensee has complied with the provisions of this subchapter, nor shall it be a defense to prosecution by the city for any violation of this subchapter.
   (B)   Organizations claiming nonprofit status must secure a license to do business within the city.  Excluded from this requirement are nonprofit resident businesses whose only business activity is to conduct fund-raising sales of cookies, candy, raffle tickets or other items in conformance with § 70-20(H). Nonprofit organizations may be required to provide documentary evidence supporting their claim of status.
   (C)   Resident businesses seeking secondary location licenses and itinerant businesses will be required to provide written permission from the owner of the commercial property upon which the itinerant or secondary location license holder will conduct business.
