(1) License required. No person shall engage in business for the purchase and resale of used personal property to include lending on such personal property (pawnbrokering) without first obtaining a license to engage in such sales and/or lending.

(2) Statutes adopted. The provisions of 134.71 Wis. Stats., as such section now exists and as hereafter amended, are hereby adopted in full as provided at 134.71(14) Wis. Stats., and violation of such statute may be enforced as a violation of this section of the Municipal Code.
