be submitted with your application. ** In accordance with Codified Ordinance 13.106.C, "before issuing a license, the Township, in its sole discretion, may require an investigation of the applicant to obtain sufficient proof that the applicant
is of good business and/or moral character and/or to confirm the accuracy of representations made in each such application. By submitting an application for a license, the applicant agrees to await a reasonable amount of time for such
investigation, which investigation may take no more than 10 business days from the date of application. If, as a result of such investigation, the applicant’s business or moral character is found to be unsatisfactory or any representation is
found to be false or misleading, the Township shall notify the applicant that such application has been disapproved and that no license shall be issued."
