Council to address curfew ordinance


Greenville – The Greenville City Council intends Tuesday to renew the city's juvenile curfew ordinance.

If the Council votes to renew the ordinance, it would remain in place until 2013.

Since 1995, juveniles in Greenville have been forbidden 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 is required to renew the ordinance every three years.
