This chapter is intended to preserve the public peace, good order, safety and welfare of the people of the Village of Tuxedo Park and to regulate the use of public and private premises.
In addition to the definitions contained in Chapter 1 hereof, the following terms shall have the meanings indicated:
BUILDING
In addition to its ordinary meaning, includes any structure, vehicle or watercraft used for overnight lodging of persons or used by persons for carrying on business therein, or an enclosed motor truck trailer. Where a building consists of two or more units separately secured or occupied, each unit shall be deemed both a separate building in itself and a part of the main building.
DWELLING
A building which is usually occupied by a person lodging therein at night.
ENTER OR REMAIN UNLAWFULLY
A person "enters or remains unlawfully" in or upon premises when he is not licensed or privileged to do so. A person who, regardless of his intent, enters or remains in or upon premises which are at the time open to the public does so with license and privilege unless he defies a lawful order not to enter or remain personally communicated to him by the owner of such premises or other authorized person. A license or privilege to enter or remain in a building which is only partly open to the public is not a license or privilege to enter or remain in that part of the building which is not open to the public. A person who enters or remains upon unimproved and apparently unused land which is neither fenced nor otherwise enclosed in a manner designed to exclude intruders does so with license and privilege unless notice against trespass is personally communicated to him by the owner of such land or other authorized person or unless such notice is given by posting in a conspicuous manner.
NIGHT
The period between 30 minutes after sunset and 30 minutes before sunrise.
PREMISES
Includes the term "building," as defined herein, and any real property.
PROPERTY OWNER
For purposes of this chapter only, any individual or entity noted on the Village tax records as a property owner, family members of such property owner(s), and residents of the property.
