The Footville Community Park shall be closed between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. daily. If sanctioned ball leagues, community celebrations or any other Village Board approved activity last longer than 10:00 p.m., the Footville Community Park shall be closed immediately following the conclusion of such activity.
It shall be unlawful for anyone to be upon or enter into the Footville Community Park premises during the hours the park is closed, 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. daily, unless the closing hour is extended by sanctioned ball leagues, community celebrations or any other Village Board-approved activity, in which case, the closing hour is immediately following the conclusion of such activity.
During the hours the Footville Community Park is open, it shall be unlawful for anyone to operate a motor vehicle in the park except upon established roadway not specifically designated for vehicular traffic.
Snowmobiles and all-terrain vehicles are prohibited from entry into the Footville Community Park at all times. Snowmobiles are defined in § 340.01(58a), Wis. Stats. All-terrain vehicles are defined in § 340.01(2g), Wis. Stats.
Any provision of this Municipal Code to the contrary notwithstanding, the possession and consumption of fermented malt beverages and wine (permitted alcohol) is permitted but only in the pavilion of the Footville Community Park and within 10 feet of the perimeter of the pavilion (the pavilion and such surrounding area being referred to in this article as the "pavilion") and only in strict compliance with this article.
Only those persons of lawful drinking age, and underage persons pursuant to Subsection E, below, may possess or consume permitted alcohol within the pavilion.
The sponsor or organizer of the event at which permitted alcohol will be consumed, who shall be of lawful drinking age, shall apply for and obtain a park beer and wine permit prior to the event and shall pay the fee therefor as prescribed from time to time by the Village Board. In addition to the amount of the fee, the applicant for the permit shall deposit an additional amount, to be determined by the Village Board, as security for adequate cleanup of the park after the event. If the cleanup is determined by the Village to be adequate, the amount of the deposit shall be refunded to the permit holder. If Village personnel are required to remove litter resulting from the event as referred to in Subsection I, below, the amount of the deposit will be retained by the Village and will be deducted from the total cost of the removal charged to the permit holder. The permit shall be issued by the Village Clerk or designee.
The permit shall authorize the permit holder and each member of the permit holder's event who is of lawful drinking age or otherwise permitted by law to possess and/or consume alcohol to lawfully possess and consume permitted alcohol only within the pavilion.
"Member of the Permit Holder's Event" is defined to include each person of lawful drinking age who, in the discretion of the permit holder, is a good faith guest, invitee or participant in the event and such underage persons as are accompanied by a parent or guardian who is a member of the permit holder's event and who consents to the possession and/or consumption of permitted alcohol by the underage person. No underage person shall transport any alcohol to or from the pavilion.
The permit holder shall be present within the pavilion at all times when permitted alcohol is being possessed or consumed within the pavilion.
The permit holder and every member of the permit holder's event shall abide by each and every provision of this article and all other provisions of the Municipal Code and of the Wisconsin Statutes.
In addition to individual violators, the permit holder shall be vicariously liable and responsible for any and all violations of this article, state law, and other provisions of the Municipal Code and may be prosecuted and held subject to the penalties for said violations concurrently, jointly, or severally with individual violators.
No member of the permit holder's event shall leave or permit the leaving behind of any litter, including any alcohol container, within the pavilion or elsewhere within the Footville Community Park after the event for which the permit is issued unless placed in an appropriate trash or recycling container. Any such litter which has not been removed from the park within 24 hours after the conclusion of the event shall be removed by Village personnel and the cost of such removal shall be charged to and paid promptly by the permit holder. Such cost shall be calculated based upon the hourly rates paid by the Village to the Village personnel providing the removal. In addition to payment of the cost of such removal, the permit holder and any other person responsible for producing the litter may be subject to prosecution under any Village ordinance prohibiting littering or similar activity.
No person shall transport to, or possess or consume within, the park or the pavilion any permitted alcohol in a bottle or other container made of glass.
Possession and consumption of permitted alcohol pursuant to this article is prohibited after 10:00 p.m. next after the time when the event for which a permit is issued begins, unless a different time is authorized by the Village Board and specified in the permit.
No person may sell any permitted alcohol within the pavilion at any time. This prohibition includes any caterer, food or beverage provider, independent contractor, or other person directly or indirectly retained by, contracted with, or hired by the permit holder.
A park beer and wine permit is not transferable.
The Village Board hereby expressly reserves to itself the right to limit or otherwise amend, at any time, any park beer and wine permit issued pursuant to this article after public hearing and public action thereon in open session, the public welfare and good so requiring. Notice of any such public hearing may be given solely by including a reference thereto in the agenda for the meeting at which the hearing will be held, in compliance with the Open Meetings Law.[1]
