Title

Creating Section 8.24(1)(ee) of the Madison General Ordinances to ban alcohol from Olbrich Park.

Body

DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  This ordinance recreates an alcohol ban at Olbrich Park that was previously created in ORD-12-00084 (Legistar File No. 26652).  The prior ordinance included a sunset clause and the ban expired on June 27, 2013.  Alcohol consumption at the park remains a problem.  This ban will not apply to the Olbrich Botanical Gardens, or other areas of the park where approved by the Parks Division or Parks Superintendent.
