[Adopted 6-25-1997 by L.L. No. 6-1997]
This article shall be known and may be cited as the "Wolcott Street Tennis and Basketball Courts Law" of the Village of LeRoy.
The Village Board of Trustees of the Village of LeRoy finds that the protection of village property and the health, safety and general public welfare of the residents and visitors of the Village of LeRoy are promoted by the establishment of standards and regulations in the form of local legislation regulating some conduct of visitors and residents at the village tennis and basketball courts at Wolcott Street.
The Village Board of Trustees hereby finds that in previous years some people who have played street hockey, ice hockey, rode bicycles, roller-skated, skateboarded or in-line skated at said courts have damaged the surface of the courts and caused injuries to themselves and potentially to others as well.
The Village Board of Trustees hereby finds that new local legislation prohibiting such conduct within said courts is desirable to help protect the public health and safety and protect village property and promote the general welfare of those persons legitimately using said courts.
The village tennis and basketball courts at the corner of Summit Street and Wolcott (hereinafter referred to as "said courts") shall include that area of the village-owned property at that location bounded by the twelve-foot high chain link fence.
No person shall play street hockey, ice hockey, ride a bicycle or roller-skate, roller-blade, skateboard or in-line skate upon said courts once this article becomes effective.
Any person who violates or disobeys the provisions of this article, or who permits such noncompliance, or neglects or refuses to comply with its terms shall be guilty of an offense and, upon conviction thereof, shall be subject to a fine of not more than $100.
