A. Upon the determination by the mayor or designee that a license application is to be denied, or that a license is to be suspended or revoked, pursuant to the provisions of this chapter, the mayor or designee shall give written notice of such action to the licensee/applicant by certified mail. The notice and order shall contain:
1. The street address, when available, and a legal description sufficient for identification of the premises upon which the violation occurred or is occurring;
2. A statement that the mayor, or designee, has found the application submitted by or the conduct of the licensee to be in violation of any business license or regulation ordinance, or otherwise meeting the grounds for denial, suspension or revocation, with a brief and concise description of the facts or conditions found to render such licensee in violation of such business license or regulation ordinance;
3. If the mayor or designee determines that the license is to be suspended or revoked, the order shall require surrender of the licenses to the mayor or designee within 20 days from the date of receipt of the notice and order;
4. A statement advising that the licensee may appeal from the notice and order or from any action of the mayor, or designee, to the city hearing examiner, provided the appeal is made in writing as provided in this chapter and filed with the business license clerk, as designated by the mayor, within 20 days from the date of receipt of the notice and order, and that failure to appeal shall constitute a waiver of all right to an administrative hearing and determination of the matter.
B. The notice and order, and any amended or supplemental notice and order, shall be served upon the licensee either personally or by mailing a copy of such notice and order by certified mail, postage prepaid, return receipt requested to such licensee at the address which appears on the business license.
C. Proof of service of the notice and order shall be made at the time of service by a written declaration under penalty of perjury executed by the person effecting service, declaring the time, date, and manner in which service was made, or by affidavit of mailing to which shall be attached the postal return receipt or original mailing if returned unclaimed.
