Whenever the Mayor, or in his/her absence the President of the Township Council, declares that a state of emergency exists requiring the protection of persons or property because of the probability or imminence of mob or other violence, or other emergency requiring the prohibiting of the sale of alcoholic beverages, the Mayor or Township Council President is hereby empowered to issue a proclamation indicating which licensees shall close their places of business and designating the period of time or times they shall remain closed. Upon receiving oral or written, if practicable, notice of such proclamation, the licensees affected thereby shall promptly obey such proclamation. If any such licensee fails to do so, the Chief of Police is hereby empowered to cause such premises to be closed at the expense of the violator.
