The adoption of Megan's Law has increased public awareness of sexual offenders by requiring them to become registered with authorities, making such information available to the public. The Village Board of the Village of Angola hereby enacts this chapter to prevent sex offenders from residing or living near areas where children regularly meet and congregate. The Village Board of the Village of Angola believes this legislation is necessary to further protect the best interest of all children and to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the residents of the Village of Angola.
Editor's Note: See Correction Law § 168 et seq.
No person over the age of 18 years, who has been convicted of a violation of a sexual offense upon a child of the age of 16 years or under, as defined by the New York State Penal Law which would require that individual to register as a sexual offender under state law and/or federal law, shall be permitted to reside or live within 1,000 feet of the real property of any school, park, playground or day care center in the Village of Angola, unless the residency of the said offender was established prior to the enactment of this legislation, in which case such offender may continue to occupy such location for three months from the effective date of this chapter.
