§ 46-8 Purpose; legislative findings and intent.

It is the purpose of this Article to protect the public interest, welfare, health and safety within the Village of Bayville by prohibiting the consumption of alcoholic beverages in public places within the village. The Village Board finds that possession of an open container of alcoholic beverage in a public place within the village has led to consumption of the same, resulting in public intoxication, disorderly conduct, disturbance of the public peace, littering of the public places and destruction of property. The Village Board finds further that preservation of the public health and prevention of conditions which lead to conduct disturbing the peace attributable to consumption of alcoholic beverages can be accomplished by the prohibition of consumption of alcoholic beverages in public places and by restricting the possession of an open or unsealed container of alcoholic beverages under circumstances which indicate that the possessor of such open or unsealed container in a public place intends to consume the same or intends to have it consumed by another person.
