Mayor of IL Town Given Power to Revoke Licenses and Shut Down Businesses

Mayor of Joliet, IL now has the power to close down a licensed business after a City Council vote, according to the Joliet Patch.

At Monday night’s pre-council meeting, Inspector General Chris Regis explained that the measure was intended to “close an existing loophole in the city ordinance” and will let the mayor close down a “potentially dangerous business,” such as one where drugs are being sold.
