Chapter 9. Licenses and Permits

Sec. 9-39. Operator's license fee; provisional licenses.

The fee for an operator's license and criteria for issuance of provisional licenses are as follows:

(1) Fee. The fee for an operator's license shall be as follows:

  1. The fee for a standard operator's license shall be $20.00 for the two-year term plus a nonrefundable investigation fee of $5.00.
  2. Partial year licenses may be issued under this article with the license fee prorated according to the following schedule:
    1. Licenses granted for a period of time of less than two years but greater than one year shall be $20.00, plus the investigation fee.
    2. License granted for a period of time of one year or less, including the transition year from current procedure, shall be $15.00, plus the investigation fee.

(2) Provisional license. The city clerk may issue provisional operator's licenses in accordance with 125.17(5) Wis. Stats. The fee for such license shall be $15.00. The provisional operator's licenses shall expire 60 days after its issuance or when an operator's license is issued to the holder, whichever is sooner. The city clerk may, upon receipt of an application for a temporary provisional license, issue such a license without requiring the successful completion of the approved program as described in this section. However, such temporary license shall be used only for the purpose of allowing such applicant the privilege of being licensed as a beverage operator pending his successful completion of the approved program. Provisional licenses may not be issued to any persons who have been denied operator's licenses by the council or who have had their operator's licenses revoked or suspended within the preceding 12 months. The city shall provide an appropriate application form to be completed in full by the applicant. The city clerk may revoke a provisional license issued if he discovers that the holder of the license made a false statement on the application. Following completion of the responsible beverage server training course and notification from the school, the license application will be presented to the committee, for referral to the council. If approved by the council, the regular operator's license shall be issued as provided above.

(3) Refund of fee. If a license is denied, the license fee shall be refunded. Upon issuance of the license, all fees become nonrefundable, regardless of subsequent use, surrender or termination.
