permit when:

filing and license fees; and

licenses and other documents necessary for the operation of such a
business; and

(c) any current license in effect at the premises has been surrendered
or placed in safekeeping, or has been deemed abandoned by the authority.

3. The liquor authority in granting such permit shall ensure that:

or effective administration of this chapter; and

(b) the applicant would in all likelihood be able to ultimately obtain

license granted, whichever is shorter. Such permit may be extended at
the discretion of the liquor authority for additional three-month
periods of time upon payment of an additional fee of fifty dollars for
each such extension.

7. Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, a temporary
permit may be summarily cancelled or suspended at any time if the liquor
authority determines that good cause for cancellation or suspension
exists. The liquor authority shall promptly notify the permittee in
writing of such cancellation or suspension and shall set forth the
reasons for such action.

8. The liquor authority in reviewing such application shall review the
entire record and grant the temporary permit unless good cause is
otherwise shown. A decision on an application shall be based on
substantial evidence in the record and supported by a preponderance of
the evidence in favor of the applicant.
