It shall be unlawful for any person, persons or corporation to engage in or carry on the business of a junk shopkeeper, junk dealer, automobile garage or establishment for the sale of used or secondhand motor vehicles or automobiles in the Township of Riverside, in the County of Burlington and State of New Jersey, without first obtaining a license as herein provided.
Any person or persons or corporation desiring to obtain a license as herein provided shall make written application therefor to the Township Clerk of said township, which said application shall state the name and residence of the applicant, the purpose for which such license is desired, the location at which the business is proposed to be carried on and the nature and character of such business.
At the meeting of the Township Committee next after the receipt of such application, said Township Clerk shall present the same to said Committee, which said Committee shall thereupon proceed to investigate said application and shall by resolution either grant or refuse to grant such license as shall appear to it to be for the best interest of such township.

Said license shall continue in force for the term of one year from the date thereof and may be renewed at the expiration of such time for the further term of one year by said Township Clerk upon the payment of the license fee heretofore fixed unless said Township Committee shall, by resolution passed before the expiration thereof, direct said Clerk not to renew said license, in which case application must be made for the renewal of such license in the same way and manner as application for license are herein directed to be made.
No person or persons or corporation licensed hereunder shall, at the expiration of the term of his or her license and before the same is renewed as herein provided, carry on the business or occupation for which such license was granted.
