DISCUSSION
The Long Beach Municipal Code (LBMC) requires an application be filed and a hearing be held before the City Council whenever this type of activity is requested and before an entertainment permit (Permit) is granted or denied.

The LBMC also requires the City Council to approve the issuance of the Permit if they find that: the issuance of the Permit at the proposed location is consistent with federal, state and local laws, rules, and regulations; it will not constitute an undue burden on the neighborhood; the applicant(s) or responsible persons have not been convicted of any misdemeanor involving moral turpitude or felony offense within the past five years; and, neither the applicant(s) or any responsible persons have a history of committing significant violations of the City code and have not provided false or misleading information on their application.

The City Council has the authority to approve the following options: (1) grant the Permit, with or without conditions; or (2) deny the Permit on the application. Once the Permit is granted, pursuant to LBMC 5.72.120.5, the Permit will be subject to an administrative review by the Financial Management Department every two years.
