[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Pulaski 3-4-1975 by L.L. No. 1-1975 as Ch. 16, Arts. I and IV, of the 1975 Code. Amendments noted where applicable.]
This chapter shall govern the licensing procedures of any business, trade, occupation, calling or profession carried on within the Village of Pulaski for which a license is required unless the procedures are otherwise required.
Additional limitations and conditions. Upon the granting of any license or permit by the Village Clerk-Treasurer, the Village Clerk-Treasurer may impose, in addition to those imposed by this Municipal Code, such further limitation and conditions as the Village Clerk-Treasurer may deem necessary for the preservation of peace and good order, the suppression of vice, the benefit of trade and the preservation and protection of public works, provided such additional limitations and conditions are not contrary to any provisions of this Municipal Code or the laws of New York State.
Bond. Such limitations and conditions shall include the right to require a bond indemnifying the Village of Pulaski against all loss or damage which it may suffer or be caused by reason of any act committed or admitted, or other thing done as a result of the issuing of such permit or license.
Approval of bond. All such bonds shall be approved by the Village Clerk-Treasurer as to the amount and by the Village Attorney as to form and the sufficiency of the sureties.
Filing of copies. The Village Clerk-Treasurer shall keep a copy of all licenses or permits granted.
Filing applications. All applications for licenses and permits, unless otherwise provided in this Municipal Code, shall be presented to the Village Clerk-Treasurer.
Contents. Every application shall be signed by the applicant and shall contain a statement of the fact required for the various licenses and permits.
Issuance of license. Such licenses shall be issued by the Village Clerk-Treasurer to such persons as he shall deem fit and proper for such trade, occupation, calling or profession but any of such licenses shall be refused for any such specified use or purpose which shall, in the judgment of the Village Clerk-Treasurer, be likely to disturb the safety, health, comfort and general welfare of the inhabitants of the Village, or be immoral or improper. Any applicant who shall have been refused such license by the Village Clerk-Treasurer may apply to the Board of Trustees therefore at a meeting thereof; and the same may be granted or refused by the Board of Trustees.
Numbering and dating of license. Every license so issued shall be dated and numbered, and shall also clearly state the object for which it is granted.
All licenses issued by the Village Clerk-Treasurer may be suspended or revoked for cause and shall not be transferable except by consent of the Village Clerk-Treasurer, and shall be issued to and accepted by the licensee on the express condition that it may be suspended by the Village Clerk-Treasurer and revoked by the Board of Trustees. If at any time in the judgment of either, the licensee proves himself unfit to hold it or the places licensed are not being conducted in a proper and orderly manner, the Village Clerk-Treasurer may suspend any such license until the next meeting of the Board of Trustees, and thereupon the said license may be revoked or continued by the Board of Trustees.
Every license shall be carried upon the licensee's person or if issued for a place of business shall be kept posted conspicuously therein.
Prepayment of fee. No license shall be issued until the fee therefor, as determined by the Board of Trustees, shall have been paid. If a license be revoked, the Board of Trustees in its discretion may repay to the licensee so much of the fee as it deems appropriate but shall not be more than the proportionate share of the unexpired portion of the term.
Record of licenses. The Village Clerk-Treasurer shall keep a record of each license issued showing its purpose, the date of its issue and expiration and the name and address of the licensee.
Each violation of any provision of this chapter shall constitute a violation pursuant to the Penal Law. A violation of this chapter shall be punishable as provided in Chapter 1, General Provisions, § 1-6, of this Code. Each day that a violation shall continue to exist shall be deemed to be a separate violation.
