This chapter shall be known and may be cited as the "Village of Depew Licensing of Businesses and Occupations Law."
The purpose of this chapter is to provide for uniform procedures for the suspension and revocation of licenses issued pursuant to this Municipal Code.
Any license issued under this Municipal Code may be suspended or revoked by the Licensing Officer as hereinafter provided.
Whenever the Licensing Officer shall determine that a licensee is violating any applicable provision of the Village of Depew Municipal Code or any applicable state or county law, rule or regulation, the Licensing Officer may revoke said license.
Notice of the hearing for revocation of a license shall be given in writing, setting forth specifically the grounds of complaint, and the tine 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 for hearing.
The Licensing Officer 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.
Any person aggrieved by the action of the Licensing Officer in the denial of an application for a license or in the decision of the Licensing 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 Board of Trustees. Such appeal shall be taken by filing a notice of appeal with the Village 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 Board of Trustees 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 Board of Trustees on such appeal shall be final and conclusive.
In case of an emergency or a serious threat to public safety, health or welfare, the Licensing 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 Board of Trustees 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.
