New York Agriculture & Markets Law
Application for License
An applicant for a license to operate as a milk dealer shall file an application upon a blank prepared under authority of the commissioner. An applicant shall state such facts concerning his circumstances and the nature of the business to be conducted as in the opinion of the commissioner are necessary for the administration of this chapter. Such application shall be accompanied by the license fee required to be paid. The commissioner may, for the purpose of establishing the rate of license fees and otherwise carrying out the duties of the commissioner under this chapter, classify licenses and issue licenses to milk dealers to carry on a certain kind of business, including but not limited to the purchase of milk, sale or distribution of milk, processing or manufacture of milk, bargaining and collecting for the sale of milk, dealing in or brokering milk, and hauling milk. Upon a finding that the applicant qualifies for a license under the standards set forth in section two hundred fifty-eight-c of this article, the commissioner shall issue such applicant a license. A license shall be for a period not exceeding one year. An application for renewal of license must be duly made at least sixty days before the expiration of such license by all milk dealers then doing business.
