The Board of License Commissioners shall have all authority to grant licenses and permits, except permits to public service corporations for locations in streets and ways of the Town.
All applications for licenses and permits shall be filed with the Licensing Coordinator, and all petitions for hearings or other requests which require or provide for publication, or advertising in newspapers, shall be accompanied by a fee sufficient to pay the expenses of such publication or notification, payable to the Town. When a public hearing is required, the applicant shall be responsible for providing written notice, by certified mail, to abutters, as certified by the Board of Assessors, and the applicant shall provide proof of such certified notice to the Board of License Commissioners.
In accordance with the provisions of MGL c. 62C, § 49A, no license or permit shall be issued to any individual or business operating within the Town unless said applicant has certified in writing, under the pains and penalties of perjury, that he/she has complied with all laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts relating to taxes, including local taxes under the provisions of MGL c. 59. The failure to properly execute such certification shall be considered grounds to revoke such license or permit.
