§ 58-1 Intent.

The personal safety and welfare of our employees, as well as the general public, is a primary and continuing concern of the Incorporated Village of Bayville.

§ 58-2 Safety Committee established.

To assist in this implementation, an executive Safety Committee will be established, consisting of key personnel from each major department, and chaired by an appointed Safety Coordinator. The Committee will meet regularly to assist in the accomplishment of our goal, reporting its findings and recommendations directly to the Mayor following each meeting or sponsored activity. The Mayor will then work with department heads to appropriately address those committee findings.
