AN ACT TO AMEND ACT 329 OF 1969, AS AMENDED, RELATING TO THE IRMO-CHAPIN RECREATION DISTRICT IN LEXINGTON COUNTY, SO AS TO PERMIT THE DISTRICT TO PROVIDE FOR THE ENFORCEMENT OF LAWS ON PROPERTY OWNED BY IT OR SUBJECT TO ITS CONTROL OR JURISDICTION.
Whereas, the Irmo-Chapin Recreation District was created to provide general recreation facilities to the area of Lexington County, within School District 5 in Lexington County; and
Whereas, the district is governed by a commission which has been empowered, among other things, to prescribe rules and regulations governing the use of its facilities; and
Whereas, in order to provide assurances of safety and the enforcement of its own rules and regulations, the General Assembly has determined that it is in the interest of the people within the district to provide the commission the authorization to enforce its rules and regulations and the laws of the State and the ordinances of the county and any municipality within which any of the district's facilities are located. Now, therefore,
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Section 5 of Act 329 of 1969, as last amended by Act 1017 of 1974, is further amended by adding at the end:
"(15) To enforce the rules and regulations of the commission and the laws of this State and the ordinances of the county or any municipality within which any of its facilities are located and to employ qualified law enforcement officers for this purpose."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
