§ 107-1 Determinations.

The Board of Trustees of the Village of Spencerport finds that the consumption of beer and other alcoholic beverages in public areas is detrimental to the health, safety and welfare of its residents, causes unsightly and unsanitary conditions and creates a nuisance.

Any bottle, can, glass or other receptacle suitable for or used to hold any liquid, which has been uncapped, uncorked, the tab removed or the top sliced, cut or broken, or its original condition altered in such a way that the liquid can flow out of it.
