Section 3-7 License or permit revocation.


    (a) The director may revoke or suspend any license or permit granted pursuant to the provisions of this chapter whenever he shall find, after a hearing, that the licensee or permittee has violated any provision of this chapter or any rule or regulation adopted pursuant to section 3-6 or when any licensee or permittee shall have been convicted in municipal court of violating any city ordinance. In such case all license or permit fees paid by said licensee shall be forfeited.

    (b) The licensee or permittee may appeal any revocation or suspension to the city council. Such appeal shall delay the revocation or suspension until the city council conducts a hearing and either upholds, overrules, modifies, or amends the director's action.

    (c) The manager may immediately suspend any license, contract, permit, enterprise, or conduct whenever an emergency exists or the continuance of said license, contract, permit, enterprise or conduct poses an immediate threat to the health, safety, or welfare of others. The director may continue the suspension, regardless of an appeal, if an emergency or threat to safety continues in existence.
