Veterans Park shall include those portions of the water of the Chesapeake Bay for which the Town, or the patrons of the park through water-dependent activities, is exercising as a riparian right. Veterans Park is hereby designated as a public park.

§ 196-22 Pets prohibited.

A. 
Pets shall not be allowed in Veterans Park. It shall be unlawful for a person to allow his pet, including but not limited to dogs and cats, whether controlled on a leash or otherwise, within the limits of Veterans Park.
B. 
Any person violating the provisions of this section shall be guilty of a municipal infraction and, upon conviction thereof, is subject to a fine of $250.

§ 196-23 Littering.

A. 
Because of the environmentally sensitive nature of Veterans Park, with its close proximity to the Chesapeake Bay, this section shall apply to the offense of littering when such offense occurs within Veterans Park, rather than any littering ordinances or code provisions which apply generally throughout the Town.
B. 
In this section, "litter" shall mean garbage, refuse, or rubbish, including:
(1) 
Putrefactive animal and vegetable wastes from the handling, preparation, cooking or consumption of food; and

(3) 
All nonputrefactive solid wastes consisting of both combustible and noncombustible wastes, including but not limited to ash, paper, wrappings, cigarettes, cardboard, tin/aluminum cans, wood, glass, abandoned vehicles or any parts thereof, bedding, crockery and similar materials.
C. 
It shall be unlawful for any person or entity to throw, discard or deposit litter in any portion of Veterans Park other than in a public trash receptacle designed to accommodate such wastes and in such a manner that the litter will be prevented from being carried or deposited by the elements upon any other part of the park. If a public trash receptacle is full or is not provided, then all such litter must be carried away from the park by the person or entity responsible for its presence and properly disposed of elsewhere, in a place acceptable in accordance with all other laws, ordinances and regulations.
D. 
Any person or entity violating the provisions of this section shall be guilty of a municipal infraction and, upon conviction thereof, is subject to a fine of $250.
