A. The town manager shall approve, deny or conditionally approve an application within forty (40) days of the receipt of the completed application unless, by written notice to the applicant, the decision period is extended for an additional ten (10) days; provided, however, that in any event the town manager shall render a decision on an application not less than forty eight (48) hours prior to the scheduled commencement of the special event which is the subject of the application.
B. If an application is denied, the town manager shall clearly set forth in writing the grounds for denial and, where feasible, shall propose measures to cure the defects that lead to the denial of the application. When the basis for denial is the prior receipt of a competing application for the same time and place, the town manager may suggest an alternative time or place for the special event which is the subject of the application which was denied.
C. In the event an application is conditionally approved, the town manager shall clearly set forth in writing the conditions of approval.
