tions. The persons and

The requirement of

such investigation is

subject to the provi-

sions of Minnesota

sions, whether or not

those positions are

compensated, shall

not be considered ap-

plicants for employ-

ment under this provi-

sion.

B. Applicants for a

liquor license or permit

issued by the City

under Chapter 5 of this

City Code. For this

purpose, the term

"applicant" means an

individual or business

organization to which

the license or permit is

requested to be is-

sued, and also any in-

dividual or organization

with ownership, con-

trol, or management

rights or authority in

connection with an ap-

plicant business or-

ganization, and any in-

dividual who is desig-

nated in the application

er, residing in or ap-

plying for tenancy in a

The authority to con-

duct background in-

vestigations for the ap-

plicants described

above shall not be

construed as an obli-

gation to do so. Other

than applicants for

whom federal law or

regulation, state law or

provision of this City

Code requires such in-

vestigation, the deci-

sion whether to con-

duct a background in-

ice Department under

sent must fully comply

with the provisions of

Minnesota Statutes

Chapter 13 regarding

the collection, mainte-

nance, and use of the

information. Failure by

the applicant to pro-

vide such written con-

sent shall constitute a

basis to reject the ap-

plication.

Subd. 4. Rejection of

applicant resulting

from investigation.

Except for the posi-

tions set forth in Min-

nesota Statutes Sec-

tion 364.09, the City

misdemeanor, or mis-

demeanor with a jail

sentence. If the City

rejects or denies an
