Due to recent gun violence, Mayor Maddox and Police Chief Steve Anderson will be enforcing the city’s curfew for teenagers under the age of 18. The curfew will be from 10 p.m. – 6 a.m. from Sunday through Thursday and from 11 p.m. – 6 a.m. on Friday and Saturday night. The official law can be found here.

“We do have a curfew that’s in place and we will be actively enforcing it,” Maddox said. “That’s one of the aspects that we will, I’m certain, the chief will be looking at. Again I’m going to let the chief implement the tactical decisions. What I want to do is to give him the maximum flexibility during this short period of time to be able to mitigate some of the gun violence that we’re seeing.”

The only exceptions to the curfew are if the teenager is with a parent or traveling to and from work.
