1.  For any cause that would be grounds for denial of a permit; or

2.  Upon a finding that any violation of the provisions of this Chapter, federal, state or other local law has been committed and the violation is connected with the operation of the permitted business location so that the person in charge of the business location knew, or should reasonably have known, that violations or offenses were permitted to occur at the location by the Dealer or any principal or employee engaged or employed in the management or operation of the business location; or

3.  A lawful inspection has been refused; or

4.  If payment of civil penalties has not been received by the Revenue Division within ten business days after the penalty becomes final; or

5.  If any statement contained in the application for the permit is false.

B.  The Director, upon revocation or suspension of any permit issued pursuant to this Chapter, shall give the Dealer written notice of the revocation or suspension.

1.  Service of the notice will be accomplished by mailing the notice by regular and certified mail, return receipt requested.

2.  Mailing of the notice by regular mail will be prima facie evidence of receipt of the notice.

C.  Revocation will be effective and final ten days after the giving of notice unless the revocation is appealed in accordance with Section 14B.90.150.

D.  Suspension will be effective immediately upon the giving of notice, for the period of time set in the notice not to exceed 30 days.
