The Village shall not issue or renew any license to transact any business within the Village of Argyle:
Prior to any denial of an application for renewal of a license, including denials pursuant to § 369-1, the applicant shall be given notice and opportunity for a hearing as hereinafter provided:
With respect to licenses other than those described in Subsection A herein, the Village Board or its assignee shall notify the applicant in writing of the Village's intention not to renew the license and shall provide the applicant with an opportunity for hearing. The notice shall state the reasons for the intended action and shall establish a date, not less than three days nor more than 10 days after the date of the notice, on which the applicant shall appear before the Village Board. If the applicant shall fail to appear before the Board on the date indicated on the notice, the Board shall deny the application for renewal. If the applicant appears before the Board on the date indicated in the notice and denies that the reasons for nonrenewal exist, the Village Board shall conduct a hearing with respect to the matter. At the hearing, both the Village and the applicant may produce witnesses, cross-examine witnesses and be represented by counsel. The applicant shall, upon request, be provided a written transcript of the hearing at the applicant's expense. If the Village Board determines the applicant shall not be entitled to renewal pursuant to § 369-1, the application for renewal shall be denied.
Where an individual, business or corporation wishes to appeal the Village Clerk-Treasurer's decision not to issue a license or permit under this chapter on grounds other than those specified in §§ 369-1 through 369-4 above, the applicant may file a request in writing with the Village Clerk-Treasurer that the matter be referred to the Village Board. A public hearing shall be scheduled within 14 calendar days by the Village Board. All parties may be represented by counsel. The Board shall consider all relevant information and shall render a decision, which shall be binding.
