Sec. 13-42. Permit.


(a) No person shall engage in the salvage yard business without a permit, which permit shall be issued by the city clerk, upon payment to the city of a permit fee as set forth in Section 2-5 of this Code, which permit shall be good for one year only; the permit year shall be from May 1 to April 30. Such permit may be revoked by the city council if any of the provisions of this article are violated by the permittee. No more than one permit shall be granted to the same person during one permit year. Permits may be renewed after review by the department of planning and community development.


(b) No person to whom a permit shall have been granted under the provisions of this article, shall do business in more than one place under one permit. Every permit shall state the place, and legal description of the real estate where such business is to be carried on, which shall be the place where junk is to be stored either inside or outside of any building located thereon and include the office building of said business. The storage of junk, or doing business upon, any real estate other than that described in the permit shall be considered a violation of the terms of this article. In case a permittee at the time of the issuance of his permit shall have any junk stored upon any real estate other than the particular real estate described in his permit, he shall remove the same therefrom within thirty (30) days after the issuance of his permit.
