[Adopted 8-11-1992 by L.L. No. 11-1992]
The Village Board of the Village of Alexandria Bay, pursuant to the authority granted to it under Article 4 of the Village Law and §§ 10 and 20 of the Municipal Home Rule Law of the State of New York, hereby enacts as follows.
[Amended 9-15-1999 by L.L. No. 3-1999]
The Board of Trustees of the Village of Alexandria Bay has found that certain streets and sidewalks within the village are heavily traveled and that use of those streets and sidewalks for sliding, coasting and skating by skaters, roller bladers, roller skaters and skateboarders presents a dangerous condition for pedestrians, traffic and residents of the Village of Alexandria Bay. In order to ensure the safety of village residents and others using those streets and sidewalks, it is necessary to restrict the use of those streets and sidewalks for sliding, coasting and skating. These activities conducted on village properties have also resulted in destruction of public facilities.
