The license shall be subject to all of said chapter 138, except section 17. The licensing authority shall not approve the transfer of the license to any other location.
The license may be re-issued by the licensing authority at the same location if an applicant for the license files with the licensing authority a letter in writing from the department of revenue indicating that the license is in good standing with the department and that all applicable taxes have been paid.
If any license granted under this section is cancelled, revoked or no longer in use, such license shall be returned physically, with all of the legal rights, privileges and restrictions pertaining thereto, to the licensing authority and the licensing authority may then grant the license to a new applicant at the same location and under the same conditions as specified in this section.
Upon issuance of the all alcoholic beverages license, Wine & Beer at the Andovers, LLC, shall return to the town the license for the sale of wines and malt beverages not to be drunk on the premises that it currently holds.
