Any violation of the provisions of this Chapter or any violation of federal or State law or City ordinance relating to minors, theft, fraud, gambling, obscenity, controlled substances, prostitution, or alcoholic beverages has occurred on or in such premises, or that any such violation was connected in time and manner with the operation of such premises and occurred within the proximity of same; or

2. Conducting of social games in such location as authorized by the permit causes disorderly or violent acts, litter, noise, vandalism, vehicular or pedestrian traffic congestion, or other similar problems in the area around the permitted premises.

If the permittee gives notice of appeal to the Bureau prior to the effective date of the revocation or suspension, suspension or revocation shall not become effective until the appeal is finally determined. If the permittee cannot be found after a reasonable effort to locate him or her has been made, then such notice may be sent by certified mail to the permit address, or posted at the same, and shall be deemed acceptable alternative means of service in lieu of personal service.

C. On a case-by-case basis, depending upon the severity of the violation and the likelihood of continued unlawful activity on such premises, in lieu of suspending or revoking a permit or to reduce the penalty period involved, with the concurrence of the permittee and the Chief of Police, the Director may order a fine of up to $500 per violation of this Code to be paid to the City's General Fund. Failure to pay the fine within 30 days shall be grounds for revocation or suspension of the social games permit.
