Revelstoke public nuisance bylaw one step from passage

Revelstoke council gives first three readings to new bylaw that could result in $500 for drunken behaviour.

Rowdiness and drunken behaviour at night could land you a $500 fine after a public nuisance bylaw passes.

Do you like to get loud and rowdy on the walk home after a night on the town? That could end up costing you $500.

Revelstoke council gave first three readings to a new public nuisance bylaw that would allow RCMP and Bylaw Enforcement Officers to ticket people who get too drunk, fight, or go to the bathroom in public.

The bylaw was recommended by RCMP Staff-Sgt. Kurt Grabinsky, who asked for a bylaw that would address the problem of rowdy late night drunks.

It prohibits “engaging in drunkenness, profane swearing or indecent, obscene or grossly insulting language on a highway of in a public place,” taking part in fights in public, and urinating or defecating in public.

Anyone who violates the bylaw can be fined up to $500, plus the cost of prosecution.

The bylaw still needs final adoption by council to become law. You can read it below.
