Any person who has had his license suspended, revoked or not renewed by the Chief Building Inspector pursuant to § 326-3 or 326-4 of this article shall have the right to a hearing upon such suspension, revocation or nonrenewal before the Village Justice as designated by the Board of Trustees. A written request for such hearing must be filed by the licensee with the Village Clerk within 15 days of notification to him of the suspension, revocation or nonrenewal by the Chief Building Inspector. Failure to timely file such request shall be deemed a waiver of the right to a hearing. The hearing shall be held within 30 days after the filing of the request therefor. All persons interested or affected shall have the opportunity to be heard at the hearing. The Village Justice, upon the completion of the hearing, shall render a written report and recommendation thereon to the Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees, after the report and recommendation of the Village Justice is reviewed, may reinstate the license, revoke the license or continue the suspension of the license for a specified period of time.
