Any applicant who shall have been refused such license by the Mayor may apply to the Board of Trustees therefor at a meeting thereof.
All of said licenses and permits shall be issued by the Mayor and shall be countersigned by the Clerk, who shall keep a record thereof and of the amount of the fee, if any, to be paid therefor; and upon presentation of such license to the Treasurer, so signed and countersigned, and the payment to the Treasurer of such license or permit fee, the Treasurer shall endorse thereon his receipt, and, except as hereinafter provided, no license or permit shall take effect until the receipt of the Treasurer shall have been endorsed thereon. The license or permit must be shown to anyone on demand, and no person holding such license or permit shall be permitted to engage in any work or occupation thereunder, and no such work or occupation shall be engaged in within the village on Sundays or before 8:00 a.m. or after 8:00 p.m. on other days.

It is hereby ordained and enacted that the Board of Trustees reserves to itself, at all times, the authority and power in order to prevent any undue or unnecessary hardship, or when, in the judgment of the Board, the public interests of the village will be promoted thereby, to remit in whole or in part the payment of any fee for any license or permit issued pursuant to the provisions of this chapter. In such case, the Clerk shall certify to the Treasurer a statement of the action taken by the Board and the extent to which the fee for such license or permit is remitted and that such license or permit shall then take effect only after the Treasurer has endorsed the same in conformity with the action of the Board.
