Agenda Item

Ordinance 2019-06 (Second and Final Reading) — An Ordinance of the Town of Lady Lake, Florida, Deleting and Replacing Ordinance 2005-44 In Its Entirety, Amending the Code of Ordinances by Adding Section 15-16 to Chapter 15, Which Shall be Entitled "Sexual Offenders" and Relating to the Residences of Sexual Offenders



Staff recommends approval of the second and final reading of Ordinance 2019-06 as presented.


The purpose of this amendment is to streamline the sexual offender ordinance with some of the language in Florida State Statute 775.215; mainly adding the word “private” to prohibited places such as parks, playground, and libraries. The additional language in the “Penalties” section, stating “A person violating any of the provisions of this ordinance shall be prosecuted in the same manner as misdemeanors are prosecuted”, will assist the State Attorney’s Office in the prosecution of offenders who violate this ordinance. There have been no changes to this ordinance since first reading.
