No person shall operate a retail food handling establishment unless a license or the approval of an existing certificate or license to operate the same shall have been authorized and issued by the Board of Health. Such license or approval of an existing license shall be posted in a conspicuous place in such establishment, or in the case of a vehicle, the license shall always be available for inspection by any public authority.

For vehicles used in connection with any retail food handling establishment, the sum of $5 for each vehicle.
All licenses issued or approved under the provisions of this chapter shall expire annually on December 31 of each year, and application for renewal thereof shall be submitted, together with the required fee, prior to January 1 of each year. Where there seems to be justification for such action, license fees may be prorated upon first issuance.
