[1972 Code § 213.001A]
It is intended that the terms "license" or "permit," wherever used herein, be synonymous if, in the interpretation of any part hereof, such synonymy is required to carry out the manifest intent and purpose of this Code.
[1972 Code § 213.001B]
All applications for licenses, permits or certificates shall be made at the office of the Board of Health during regular office hours and the fees for every license or permit shall be paid in advance at the time of making the application therefor.
[1972 Code § 213.001C]
The granting of any license, permit or certificate may be withheld, at the discretion of the Board, pending examination, investigation or inspection of the person who, or the premises which, may be the subject matter of the license, permit or certificate under consideration.
[1972 Code § 213.001D]
All licenses, permits or certificates issued under any Chapter of this Code shall be valid only for the balance of the calendar year in which they are issued, unless otherwise provided. No such license, permit or certificate shall be transferable or assignable.
[1972 Code § 213.001E]
The Board shall evidence the granting of any license, permit or certificate issued, by furnishing to the licensee, permittee or certificate holder, a suitable card, sign, placard, disc, plate or other writing which shall convey information concerning the nature of such license, permit or certificate, the serial number of the same, name of the person to whom the same has been issued, the year in which the same is so issued, the premises or vehicles so licensed, if that be material or required, and such other information as the Board may deem pertinent.
[1972 Code § 213.001F]
Every license, permit or certificate issued by the Board shall be displayed in a conspicuous place in the establishment, premises or other place for which the same is issued, and shall likewise be so displayed on every vehicle or conveyance so licensed, for the period that the license, permit or certificate shall be in force, unless the Board shall otherwise prescribe.
[1972 Code § 213.002]
Every license, permit or certificate issued under the Sanitary Code of New Jersey or this Board of Health Code may, at any time during the term for which the same is so issued, be suspended by the Board or its Health Officer, pending a hearing to be granted the holder thereof, pursuant to a notice to show cause to the Board why the license, permit or certificate should not be suspended further or revoked.
No license, permit or certificate shall be suspended unless the Health Officer shall file with the Board a complaint or charges evidencing one or more violations under which the license, permit or certificate was originally issued.
During the period of any such suspension, every license, permit or certificate so suspended shall be ineffective and the holder shall, during the entire period of such suspension, cease the operation of any business or discontinue every activity or use permitted under the license, permit or certificate which was suspended.
[1972 Code § 213.003]
Any license, permit or certificate issued under the provisions of this Code may be revoked at any time by the Board for just cause, or if licensee, permittee or certificate holder, or any of the employees or agents of the licensee, permitee, or certificate holder violates any provision of this Code or any regulation of the Department of Health of New Jersey specifically applicable to the subject matter for or upon which the license, permit or certificate was issued.
Before any license, permit or certificate may be revoked, the holder thereof shall be given a hearing and an opportunity to be heard on the complaint made or violation(s) charged against him.
The time and place for such hearing shall be fixed at the discretion of the Board; provided, however, that an unreasonable time shall not be permitted to elapse between the date of any suspension of license and the date fixed for the hearing.
Notice of the time and place of the hearing shall be given by the Board to the holder of the license, permit or certificate so involved, in writing, and served either personally or sent to him by registered mail.
A licensee, permittee or certificate holder who fails to appear at the hearings shall not be entitled to any further hearing and in that event his license, permit or certificate may, as a matter of course, be forthwith revoked.
