Council renews juvenile curfew

GREENVILLE — The Greenville City Council voted Tuesday to renew the city’s juvenile curfew ordinance.

Council member Dan Perkins said the curfew has been in place for 18 years and has been adjusted to provide exceptions for home-schooled students and others.

“It seems like a really good thing to do,” Perkins said.

Police Chief Daniel Busken said the curfew has been accepted by local residents.

“I can’t recall any complaints I’ve encountered as far as enforcement of this ordinance,” Busken said.

Since 1995, juveniles in Greenville have been prohibited from being on local streets between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. Sunday through Thursday, between midnight and 6 a.m. weekends and between 9 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. school days. The ordinance does not apply directly to students who are home-schooled.

The Council voted unanimously to renew the curfew ordinance for another three years.
