[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Lloyd 9-14-1934. Amendments noted where applicable.]
No carnival or other outdoor or tent show or exhibition shall be permitted a license for a longer period than three days and never beyond the 31st day of December of the current year.
No license for such carnival or show shall be granted except on resolution of the Town Board at a meeting thereof duly called for that purpose, which resolution must be carried by a favorable vote of at least five members.
The license fee, which must be paid to the Supervisor of the Town before the license shall be issued, shall be $100.
No license shall be issued, in any event, unless a cash deposit or bond approved by the Town Board shall be deposited with the Town Supervisor, which bond shall run to the Town of Lloyd and shall be conditioned to save said Town harmless from any expense by reason of additional policing or damage to Town property or highways occasioned by reason of such exhibition, show or carnival or by reason of the transportation over or along the Town highways of the property or material thereof or of the individuals belonging thereto or of any concessions connected therewith. In the event a cash deposit is made, same shall not be withdrawn until at least 10 days after the final exhibition.
The license when issued shall be in substantially the following form:
The application for the license shall be in substantially the following form:
Should any penalty accrue under the terms of said license, the Supervisor shall be entitled without any other action to deduct the amount thereof from the cash deposit made with him at the time of returning the money, and he shall also be authorized to retain any other charges for damages, additional policing or otherwise to which the Town may be entitled.
Peace officers, for the purpose of maintaining order and preventing abuse or disturbance, may be assigned for duty at any carnival, show or exhibition to which a license shall be granted, and the proper compensation of such officers shall be a charge against the licensee.
No license for the operation of a dance hall under the provisions of § 222 of the Town Law shall be granted except upon the resolution of the Town Board of at least five members voting favorably.
The Town Board, in its discretion, before the granting of any license for a dance hall, may require a public hearing upon publishing notice of at least two weeks, the cost of the publication of the notice to be paid by the applicant for the license. No person who shall be the holder of a dance hall license shall be entitled to operate or hold dances at any other times or places than those distinctly specified in the license. The Town Board may, in its discretion, require as a condition for the granting of such a license the authority to assign to duty at such dance hall, during the time it shall be in operation, peace officers for the purpose of maintaining order therein. The compensation of such peace officers shall be fixed by the Town Board and shall be paid by the licensee, at least weekly, to the Supervisor of the Town who shall be authorized to make the payment thereof to such peace officers.
A license for the operation of a dance hall shall terminate without action of the Town Board upon the failure to make payment for the compensation of said officers as same shall accrue, not less frequently than once in each week, and the fact that pay for such officers remains unpaid for six days to the Supervisor shall be conclusive evidence of the failure of the licensee to comply with the provisions of this chapter.
[Amended 3-12-1980 by L.L. No. 4-1980]
Any person committing an offense against any provision of this chapter shall, upon conviction, be punishable by a fine of not more than $250 or by imprisonment for not more than 15 days, or by both such fine and imprisonment.
