[HISTORY: Adopted by the City Council of the City of Glen Cove 8-25-1981 by L.L. No. 1-1981 as Ch. 16, Art. I, of the 1981 Code. Amendments noted where applicable.]
This chapter shall be known and may be cited as the "City of Glen Cove Licensing and Regulation of Businesses Ordinance."
Any license issued under this chapter may be suspended or revoked by the issuing officer or hearing officer as hereinafter provided.
Revocation. Whenever the issuing officer shall determine that a licensee is violating any applicable provision of the Code of the City of Glen Cove or any applicable state or county law, rule or regulation, the issuing officer or any hearing officer designated by him or her may revoke said license or permit.
Notice of hearing. Notice of the hearing for revocation of a license or permit shall be given in writing, setting forth specifically the grounds of complaint and the time and place of hearing. Such notice shall be mailed, postage prepaid, to the licensee at his or her last known address at least 10 days prior to the date set for hearing.
Authority of hearing officer. The issuing officer or any hearing officer appointed by him or her may administer oaths, subpoena witnesses and take testimony in respect to any matter properly before him or her and may accept affidavits in lieu of oral testimony.
Appeals. Any person aggrieved by the action of the issuing officer in the denial of an application for a license or permit or in the decision of the issuing officer or hearing officer with reference to the revocation of a license or permit as provided for in this section shall have the right to appeal to the City Council. Such appeal shall be taken by filing a notice of appeal with the City Clerk within 14 days after notice of the action complained of has been mailed to such person's last known address, together with a written statement setting forth fully the grounds for the appeal. The City Council shall set a time and place for hearing on such appeal and notice of such hearing shall be mailed to the applicant at his or her last known address at least five days prior to the date set for the hearing. The decision and order of the City Council on such appeal shall be final and conclusive.
Suspension. In case of an emergency or a serious threat to public safety, health or welfare, the issuing officer may suspend a license until such time as a final determination can be had on the revocation of a license under this section. For good cause, the City Council may remove such suspension pending final determination subject to such terms and conditions as it deems appropriate or necessary to safeguard the public safety, health or welfare.
Any person desiring his/her fingerprints taken by the Police Department for nondepartmental purposes, including but not limited to liquor and pistol licenses, immigration processing and various job applications, is required to pay a processing fee as set forth from time to time by the Common Council.
Editor's Note: The fee schedule is on file in the city offices.
The fee is payable by cash or money order to the City of Glen Cove.
This fee is in addition to any fees charged by agencies responsible for the processing of fingerprints and any fees required and so specified within this section for specific license types.
The above-mentioned fee would not be imposed upon any individual requiring fingerprinting when such fingerprints are required by either a volunteer agency of the City of Glen Cove or as a pre-employment requirement of the City of Glen Cove.
