City Council to take final vote Tuesday on juvenile curfew

GREENVILLE — The Greenville City Council intends to take a final vote Tuesday on whether to renew the city’s juvenile curfew ordinance.

Following a public hearing during the March 27 regular session, the Council took a unanimous record vote in favor of renewing the curfew for three more years.

A second public hearing and a final vote on the curfew are scheduled during Tuesday’s regular session, starting at 6 p.m. in the Municipal Building, 2821 Washington Street. A work session is also set for 5 p.m. Tuesday.

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 in 2010.
