Article I Littering
By the adoption of this article, the Town Board of the Town of Evans declares its intent to be to regulate, in a manner consistent with the interest, protection, well-being and safety of the citizens of the Town of Evans, the use of the beaches along the shores of Lake Erie. The Town of Evans has many miles of fine sandy shores bordering on Lake Erie. Some people, in the use thereof, are careless and thoughtless of their own welfare and that of other users of such beaches in that glass beverage containers are intentionally broken or carelessly abandoned to become later broken and become a hidden danger to other users of the beach by causing cuts on the persons of such users of the beach. Recognizing its responsibility for the welfare of its citizens and to protect them from injury and in the exercise of its police power, in these regards the Town Board of the Town of Evans does hereby enact the following Article.
This article shall apply to all the sand, pebble or stone beaches within the Town of Evans lying between the waters of Lake Erie and that portion of the land usually forming the bank or earth embankment constituting the permanent shoreline.
No person shall throw, deposit, carry or use any glass bottle or other glass container, bottle, jug, glass or mug, whether empty or containing liquid of any kind, which receptacle is ordinarily used or designed to contain beverages, over or onto the beaches of Lake Erie within the Town of Evans.
Any person who commits any acts in violation of any of the provisions of this article shall be guilty of a violation and, upon conviction, shall be subject to a fine of not more than $250 or imprisonment for not more than 15 days, or to both such fine and imprisonment.
[Amended 12-15-1993 by L.L. No. 13-1993]
In addition to the above-provided penalties and punishment, the Town Board may also maintain an action or proceeding in the name of the town in a court of competent jurisdiction to compel compliance with or to restrain by injunction the violation of this article.
