Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives
in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same,
SECTION 1. The board of license commissioners of the city of Cambridge may assess a fine not to exceed three hundred dollars against any person where said board, following an evidentiary hearing, finds that such person has violated a licensing statute, ordinance, or regulation enforceable by said board, relating to hackney carriages, jitneys, livery services, enterprises transmitting requests for transportation to operators of hackney carriages, jitneys, or livery services, or to enterprises which may have liens on licenses for hackney carriages, jitneys, or livery services. No fine shall be assessed unless such person has been given seven days' written notice of the hearing, either in person, at his last known place of abode, or at his usual place of business. No fine shall be assessed unless the board finds that a violation of such licensing law has been proved by a preponderance of the evidence. Any such fine levied pursuant to the provisions of this statute shall be civil and reviewable pursuant to section four of chapter two hundred and forty-nine of the General Laws.
SECTION 2. This act shall take effect upon its passage.
