Salisbury City Council will hold a public hearing Tuesday on a proposed curfew for juveniles.
After the hearing, council will consider adopting the “Youth Protection Ordinance,” which contains the curfew.
The curfew would make it unlawful for juveniles to be in a public places between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. Sunday-Thursday and between 12:01 a.m. and 6 a.m. Saturday and Sunday.
The ordinance’s definition for public places would include restaurants, theaters, stores, bowling alleys, schools, playgrounds, parks, streets, sidewalks and parking lots.
Juveniles violating the curfew would be subject to being referred to juvenile court or diverted from court to an appropriate community program.
Parents or guardians and owners or operators of establishments where the curfew is violated also can be held accountable under the ordinance. They could be found guilty of a misdemeanor and fined $100.
Council meets at 4 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, 217 S. Main St.
In other agenda items, council will:
– Hold a public hearing on Marsha Wood’s request for a special-use permit. She seeks the permit to allow construction of a 1,200-square-foot, two-story secondary dwelling at 702 Mitchell Ave.
