One of the more common concerns of residents is the Curfew Ordinance. As a means of minimizing juvenile delinquency and protecting our youth, an ordinance establishes times when minors may not appear in a public place without a parent or legal guardian. The following is a list of ages and corresponding times when minors are not permitted to appear in public without parents:
10:00 p.m. - 6:00 a.m. - minors 11 years of age or younger
10:30 p.m. - 6:00 a.m. - minors 12 or 13 years of age
11:00 p.m. - 6:00 a.m. - minors 14 through 17 years of age
The hours indicated are "prevailing time" and exceptions for employment, school, and other exceptional activities may be granted by the Chief of Police on a case by case basis.
