7.08.010 Permit required – Application – Minors under 18 not permitted.

It is unlawful for anyone, directly, or indirectly, to maintain any billiard or pool hall or pool table, open to the public, for gain or commercial purposes, or in association with any commercial enterprise without first obtaining a permit therefor from the chief of police. Application for such permit shall be in writing and set forth such information as required by the chief of police, and the applicant shall submit to fingerprinting by the chief of police. The chief of police may deny the application if he or she finds that the applicant has been convicted of any crime punishable by imprisonment in a state prison or has operated any establishment in the past which has become a resort for habitual lawbreakers or delinquents. Said permit when granted must be renewed by January 31st of each year and may be revoked if the holder thereof shall fail to maintain the requirements set forth for the obtaining of said permit or set forth in this section. A decision of the chief of police hereunder may be appealed to the city council, which, after hearing thereon and findings that the standards set forth herein have not been met by the applicant or permittee, may sustain the decision of the chief of police. All such businesses shall be closed between the hour of 12:00 midnight and 6:00 a.m. of the following morning every day of the year. Nothing contained herein shall relieve an applicant from the requirement of obtaining a use permit under the provisions of PGMC Title 23. Said permittee shall not allow persons under 18 years of age in or around his or her establishment. [Ord. 481 N.S., 1964; Ord. 402 N.S., 1962; Ord. 210 N.S. § 8-2030, 1952].
