[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Board of the Town of Brighton as indicated in article histories. Amendments noted where applicable.]
[Adopted 9-12-1979 by L.L. No. 4-1979]
It is the intent of the Town of Brighton as an exercise of its police power to promote the general health, safety and welfare of the residents of the Town by enacting this article, since it is the finding of the Town Board that the consumption of alcoholic beverages and/or the possession of open containers of alcoholic beverages by persons on public premises, except under controlled conditions, is detrimental to the health, safety and welfare of the residents of the Town and contributes to the development of unsanitary conditions and the creation of a nuisance.
[Amended 1-24-1996 by L.L. No. 1-1996]
No person shall consume, have, possess, carry or transport any liquor, wine, beer or other alcoholic beverage in an open bottle or other open container in or upon any public sidewalk, street, land, highway, building or other public property without a permit issued pursuant to the provisions of the Code of the Town of Brighton.
If any individual or organization desires to have, distribute, or consume alcoholic beverages on public property in the Town of Brighton, said individual or organization must apply in person to the Town Clerk of the Town or his or her duly authorized representative for a permit therefor at least three days prior to the date scheduled for using such beverages. The fee shall be as set by resolution of the Town Board and on file in the Clerk's office for the granting of said permit.
[Amended 1-24-1996 by L.L. No. 1-1996; 6-26-2002 by L.L. No. 4-2002]
