A. 
The Trustees of the Freeholders and Commonalty of the Town of Southampton (hereinafter referred to as the "Town Trustees") are empowered to regulate the taking of products (including fish and other products) from the waters (including land below the waters) within the Town of Southampton which are under the jurisdiction of the Town Trustees (hereinafter referred to as "Town Trustee waters"), including Town Trustee waters situate within the Village of Southampton. The Rules and Regulations for the Management and Products of the Waters of the Town of Southampton adopted by the Town Trustees (hereinafter referred to as the "Town Trustee Rules and Regulations") regulate, among other things, the taking of products from Town Trustee waters. The purpose of this chapter is to provide specific authority in the Village Code for enforcement by the village of certain Town Trustee Rules and Regulations applicable to Town Trustee waters situate within the village.
B. 
Although the Town Bay Constables are authorized to enforce the Town Trustee Rules and Regulations relating to the taking of products from Town Trustee waters situate within the village, the duties of the Town Bay Constables include enforcement with respect to Town Trustee waters within the entire Town of Southampton, a large geographical area containing numerous bodies of water which constitute Town Trustee waters. The Village Board of Trustees finds that enactment of this chapter will promote the objectives of certain Town Trustee Rules and Regulations by providing additional enforcement authority and assistance with respect to Town Trustee waters situate within the village. The Village Board of Trustees finds that such additional enforcement authority and assistance will benefit the inhabitants of the town, including the inhabitants of the village.
