§ 54-1 Intent.

It is the intention of the Town Board of the Town of Brookhaven that, to preserve and protect the public order, safety and welfare, certain relevant information relative to each applicant for a license or permit required by ordinance or local law be made available to the Town pursuant to an agreement executed on or about June 14, 1977, with the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services.

§ 54-2 Procedures.

[Amended 7-19-2005 by L.L. No. 16-2005, effective 7-27-2005]
A. 
Applications for all licenses and permits required by ordinance or local law shall be made, in writing, to the Town Clerk of the Town of Brookhaven in the absence of any provision to the contrary. Each application shall state the name of the applicant, the license or permit desired, the location to be used, if any, and the fee to be paid. Each application shall also contain such additional information as may be deemed necessary and appropriate.
B. 
Fingerprints of each applicant for peace officer employee certification, taxicab owner and operators, tow truck owner and operators, carting company principals and peddlers' permits, who remain active with the Town of Brookhaven, may be taken in duplicate by the Commissioner of Public Safety or his designee. The Commissioner of Public Safety or his designee will be responsible for obtaining and reviewing criminal history record information disseminated by the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services. One copy of such fingerprints may be attached to such application filed with the Department of Public Safety. The other copy may be forwarded without delay to the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services for processing and be placed on a search-and-retain basis in order to receive notification of an arrest that may occur after the issuance of license, permit or certification.
C. 
Any such license, permit or certification may be revoked or denied to any applicant who has been convicted of a felony or a crime involving an act or acts of moral turpitude and would disqualify an applicant from employment or licensure if the disability has not been removed, as provided in the Correction Law.

§ 54-3 General severability.
