Operator as used herein is hereby defined to be any person who sets up for operation by another or leases or distributes for the purpose of operation by another any device as herein defined, whether such setting up for operation, leasing or distributing be for a fixed charge or rental, or on the basis of a division of the income derived from such device, or otherwise.

Proprietor is hereby defined to be any person who, as the owner, lessee, or proprietor, has under his or its control any establishment, place or premises in or at which such device is placed or kept for use or play, or on exhibition for the purpose of use or play.

After an application for such license has been applied for in accordance with Section 10-1, the Village Clerk shall refer such application to the Mayor and Board of Trustees who shall make or cause to be made an investigation as they deem necessary. 

In case a proprietor licensed under the provisions of this Section desires, after the expiration of any portion of any license year, to increase the number of devices to be used or played, or exhibited for use or play in his establishment, he shall surrender his license to the Village Clerk who shall issue a new license showing the number of devices licensed thereunder, upon payment of the proper license fee therefor.
