Prior to the adoption of Ord. 18006 on 03/01/2004, Section 4-6 read as follows.

    If an application for a license under this chapter is denied by the city manager, the applicant may request, in writing, a review of such denial by the city council, such request to be made by the applicant within ten (10) days after the application for license has been denied by the city manager. Upon the written request for review, made within the time specified, the city council shall, within thirty (30) days after the receipt of such request, investigate and examine the applicant, his qualifications, the proposed place of business and the facts and circumstances surrounding such application and the denial thereof; and the city council may set aside the denial of such application by the city manager if a majority of its members determines that the application should be granted; and the city council may order the business license administrator to issue the license applied for. In the event that the city manager does not approve or disapprove such application within thirty (30) days from the date such application is filed, then it shall be assumed that the application is denied, and the applicant may perfect his appeal to the city council as herein provided.
