Chapter 9. Licenses and Permits

Sec. 9-37. Procedure upon application.

The procedure upon application for an operator's license shall be as follows:

(1) The council may issue an operator's license, which license shall be granted only upon application in writing on forms to be obtained from the city clerk and only to a person 18 years of age or older. Operator's licenses shall be operative only within the limits of the city.

(2) All full-term operator's license renewals must be applied for by May 1 of the year the license expires to allow sufficient time for conducting property background checks prior to the May meeting of the committee. The fee required by this article must accompany the application.

(3) All applications are subject to an investigation by the chief of police and/or other appropriate authority to determine whether the applicant to be licensed complies with all regulations, ordinances and laws applicable thereto. The police department shall conduct an investigation of the applicant including, but not limited to, requesting information from the state, surrounding municipalities, and any community where the applicant has previously resided concerning the applicant's arrest and conviction record. Based upon such investigation, the chief of police or his designee shall provide a written recommendation for approval or denial of the application.
