B. Suspension Or Revocation: The city shall either suspend or revoke a certificate when any of the reasons warranting the denial of a certificate occurs.

C. Notice Of Denial Or Suspension: Upon determination of the licensing officer to deny an applicant’s completed application or to suspend a registered solicitor’s certificate, the city shall cause written notice to be sent to the applicant or registered solicitor by the method indicated in the completed application. The notice shall specify the grounds for the denial or suspension, the documentation or information the city relied on to make the decision, the availability of the documentation for review by applicant upon one business day’s notice to the city, and the date upon which the denial or suspension of the certificate shall take effect. It shall further state that the applicant or registered solicitor shall have ten (10) business days from the receipt of the notice of denial or suspension to appeal the same. The denial or suspension of the certificate shall be effective no sooner than two (2) calendar days from the date the notice is sent, unless that suspension is because of exigent circumstances outlined in subsection C4 of the definition of “substantiated report” in section 3-2B-2 of this article, in which case, the suspension is effective immediately. The denial or suspension shall remain effective unless and until the order is rescinded, overturned on appeal, or determined by a court to be contrary to equity or law. Failure to appeal the suspension of a certificate automatically results in its revocation. (Ord. 2006-09-003, 9-7-2006) (Ord. 2006-09-003, 2006.)
