For the safety of Nyack residents, the alcohol ban started Wednesday night at 6 p.m. is ongoing until all street and traffic lights have been restored, according to Mayor Jen Laird-White.
However, restaurants are allowed to serve food until 10 p.m.
On the village website, it reads:
The Mayor and Village Board has ordered that the sale and distribution of alcoholic beverages (as defined by Section 3 of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Law, but not included in patented medicines) is prohibited within the Village until further notice.
This is due to the fact there are no street lights and excessive demands on the police force to handle priority issues in the aftermath of the hurricane.
This policy was effective as of 1pm on Oct 31, 2012.
