Any person aggrieved by the action of the Chief of Police or the City Clerk in the denial of the license, or of the City Clerk in the suspension or revocation of a license, shall have the right to appeal to the City Council. Such appeal shall be taken by filing with the City Clerk written notice thereof within five days after the entry of the order of suspension or revocation or denial. The notice of appeal shall specify an address at which the licensee may be given notice of appearing on the appeal. The City Council shall hear the appeal or may refer the same to a committee of the Council for hearing. At the hearing the licensee shall be entitled to appear in person and offer evidence pertinent to the suspension, revocation or denial, and the City Clerk shall likewise be entitled to be heard at the hearing and offer evidence in support of his order of suspension or revocation. The Chief of Police may be present at the hearing and present evidence in support of his denial of the license. The City Council shall determine whether the suspension, revocation or denial shall be sustained and its action in that respect shall be final and conclusive.
