The license fee for such a sale shall be Twenty-Five Dollars ($25.00) plus Two Dollars ($2.00) for each Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00) or fraction thereof of the submitted inventory, and the license shall be valid for thirty (30) days from the date of its issue. If all items on such inventory are not sold within thirty (30) days from the issuance of the license, it may be renewed by the filing of a sworn statement by the licensee with the City license officer, listing the items on the original inventory that have not been sold and affirming that no goods other than the inventoried goods have been or will be sold in connection with such sale. The fee for the renewal license shall be an additional Fifty Dollars ($50.00), and such renewal license shall be valid for an additional thirty (30) days. No further renewal shall be granted. Any application for a license for the sale of any distressed goods previously inventoried and licensed within the last year shall be deemed an application for a renewal, whether submitted by the original applicant or by another person.
