                        (a)        all convictions of the applicant, the reasons therefor and his demeanor subsequent to such conviction;

                        (b)        the license history of the applicant, whether such person in previously operating in this or another state under a license has had such license revoked or suspended, the reasons therefor, and the demeanor of the applicant subsequent to such action; and

                        (c)        any additional facts concerning the applicant's moral character which are relevant to the operation of the business for which a license application has been made and its effect on the public.

            (2)        Prior defaults.  The license officer may refuse to grant a license to any applicant who has willfully refused previously to comply with the provisions of this Chapter where compliance was required, or who is indebted to the City on any past due obligation.

            (3)        Zoning conflict.  No license shall be granted to any applicant where the conduct of the proposed business will constitute a violation of Title 19 of this Code.  Each applicant shall present with his application evidence to the effect that the proposed use of the premises upon which the business is to be conducted is not a violation of Title 19 of this Code.  Any license issued contrary hereto is void.
