Can my Tobacco Retailer’s License (TRL) be suspended or revoked? If this happens, do I have appeal rights?

Yes, Tobacco Retailer’s License (TRL)s may be suspended or revoked and the license holder retains appeal rights. If the licensee contacts the City to challenge the finding of a violation, the City shall provide written notice of a hearing, at which the tobacco retailer may show cause why a violation does not exist. Should the tobacco retailer fail to present evidence at such hearing establishing, in the reasonable determination of the hearing officer, that a violation does not exist, written notice will be provided to the tobacco retailer that the notice of violation is upheld.
