The Municipality of West Perth wants residents and visitors to enjoy the various facilities and parks. In order for the Municipality to ensure the health and safety of its participants, minimize risk and liability and to protect the municipal facilities, an “Alcohol Policy” for the orderly use of alcohol during events and functions has been developed.
The objectives of the “Alcohol Policy” are as follows:
1. To ensure proper operation and supervision of the Special Occasion Licensed events by providing education in prevention and intervention techniques and effective management procedures. This will lower the risk of liability to the Municipality of West Perth.
2. To reinforce responsible drinking practices for consumers through appropriate operational procedures and controls.
3. To honour the decision of abstainers not to drink alcohol and to encourage their participation by providing alternative non-alcoholic beverages.
4. To provide a balanced use of alcohol through Special Occasion Permit and licensed events that alcohol becomes a responsible part of a social function rather than the reason for it.
