(b) Whenever the director or commissioner have knowledge that the business operations of a retail sales-by-drink, C.O.L. or sales-by-package establishment licensed under this chapter are discontinued for any reason and the operations remain interrupted for a period of more than 30 consecutive days, then the director may provide written notification of the closing to the owners of property parcels located in Kansas City, Missouri as defined by Geographic Information Systems maps based on the North American Datum 1983 Missouri West State Plane Coordinate System, maintained by the Public Works department of the city, wholly within or intersected by a radius of 350 feet from the premises, as measured from the center of the door for the main entrance to the premises.


(c) Whenever the director or commissioner have knowledge that the business operations of a retail sales-by-drink, C.O.L. or sales-by-package establishment licensed under this chapter are discontinued for any reason and the operations remain interrupted for a period of more than 120 consecutive days, then the director shall provide written notification of the closing to the owners of property parcels located in Kansas City, Missouri as defined by Geographic Information Systems maps based on the North American Datum 1983 Missouri West State Plane Coordinate System, maintained by the Public Works department of the city, wholly within or intersected by a radius of 350 feet from the premises, as measured from the center of the door for the main entrance to the premises.
