How are applications reviewed and approved and can conditions be imposed?
The Administrative Services Director shall refer all applications received to the relevant Town departments for review. Each department will examine the application to determine whether any conditions should be assigned to issue the license. Inspection of the site shall be conducted as necessary to determine applicability, compliance with, or the adequacy of conditions to achieve compliance with Town, state, federal or otherwise applicable codes, rules, regulations or laws. The business license will be issued no later than 60 days after the date a complete application is filed, unless grounds for denial exist as established in the Town’s ordinance.

The Administrative Services Director may issue the business license upon such conditions as are necessary to ensure safety and prevent the business from disturbing the peace and tranquility of the neighborhood in which it is located. The conditions may include, but are not limited to the following:

1.Limitations upon hours or days of operation, when required in order to prevent disturbance of the peace and quiet of a neighborhood caused by the business or the patrons of the business
2.Requirement that the business provide licensed or other qualified security personnel for the exterior or interior of the business during operating hours
3.Requirement that the business fund any additional law enforcement services required as a result of the operations of the business
4.The installation of on-site improvements required to prevent operation of the business from disturbing its neighbors at a particular location; or
5.Other conditions related to operations or improvements demonstrated under the particular circumstances to be necessary in order to prevent hazards, disturbance of the peace, quiet or safety of the neighborhood; or other nuisance.

Such conditions may be imposed at the time a business license is initially issued, renewed, or at any time during the term of the license.
