All applications for licenses and for endorsements thereon shall be made to the Village Clerk in such form as he may prescribe. All licenses shall be issued by the Mayor and countersigned by the Village Clerk.
Any license may be revoked or suspended, for good cause shown, by the Board of Trustees, upon recommendation of the License Board, after specific charge has been made, a fair hearing held and a finding of the unfitness of the licensee made.
The Board of Trustees hereby appoints a Master Electricians' License Board in the person of the Chief Engineer of the village or his duly appointed deputy and which shall be vested with the following powers:
By examination and investigation of their qualifications, to determine the fitness of applicants for master electrician's license and to recommend to the Mayor the issuance of a license to those found worthy and well qualified.
