Title

Creating Subdivision 8.24(1)(ii) of the Madison General Ordinances to Ban Alcohol at Allied Park

Body

DRAFTER’S ANALYSIS:  This ordinance creates an alcohol ban at Allied Park.  Temporary alcohol bans have been issued under the authority of Board of Parks Commissioners, but these park rule violations have been insufficient to address the ongoing issues at this park.  By amending the ordinance, this will make possession of alcohol in the park an ordinance violation and give the City greater enforcement tools to address the underlying issues at the park.
