Sec. 5A.13. Revocation of license--Alternative procedure.

(1) Whenever it appears to the chief of police that the licensee is conducting bingo games in violation of any of the provisions of this chapter, or that the license was obtained by fraudulent representation and no summary suspension is ordered under Section 26.12, the license may be revoked; provided, however, the licensee may appear before the chief of police at the time fixed by the chief of police for the purpose of presenting evidence why the license should not be revoked. No license shall be revoked under this section unless written notice shall have first been given at least five days before the hearing thereof by depositing in the United States mail a notice directed to such licensee at the address given in the application. The notice shall set forth a summary of the ground advanced as the basis of the revocation.
(2) Any organization whose license is revoked under this section shall not conduct any bingo game in the city until such time as the city council, on appeal, determines to overrule the decision of the chief of police. (Ord. No. 895, § 2.)
