Subd. l. Preliminary investigation. On an initial application for an on-sale license and on application for transfer of an existing on-sale license, the applicant shall pay with his application an investigation fee of $200.00 and the City shall conduct a preliminary background investigation of the applicant. The application in such case shall be made on a form prescribed by the State Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and with such additional information as the Council may require. If the Council deems it in the public interest to have an investigation made on a particular application for renewal of an on-sale license, it shall so determine. In any case, if the Council determines that a comprehensive background and financial investigation of the applicant is necessary, it may conduct the investigation itself or contract with the Bureau of Criminal Investigation for the investigation. No license shall be issued, transferred, or renewed if the results show to the satisfaction of the Council that issuance would not be in the public interest. If an investigation outside the State is required, the applicant shall be charged the cost not to exceed $500.00 which shall be paid by the applicant after deducting any initial investigation fee already paid. The fee shall be payable by the applicant whether or not the license is granted.

The City Council shall cause to be investigated all facts set out in the application and not investigated in the preliminary background investigation conducted pursuant to Subd. l. Opportunity shall be given to any person to be heard for or against the granting of the license. After the investigation and hearing, the Council shall, in its discretion, grant or refuse the application. No "Off-sale" license shall become effective until it, together with the security furnished by the applicant, and has been approved by the Commissioner of Public Safety.
