A local community is planning on enforcing a curfew for children who stay out late at night.
The number of kids staying out late at night convinced Everson leaders that something had to be done.
The chief of police told Channel 11’s Joe Holden that he won’t have a problem enforcing the curfew, which will target those under 18.
Leaders in the small borough of Everson said the streets will be off-limits after 9 p.m. in the winter and 10 p.m. in the summer.
Vera Stevens, who lives on Broad Street, said she’s in favor of the curfew because there’s too much commotion at night.
“There’s a fair amount (of commotion). Especially in the summer, when the windows are open, there is noise all night long. People yell and holler and walk down the sidewalks,” Stevens said.
At a meeting Monday night, council members expressed concern over the number of kids who walk the streets late at night.
No Everson council members have directly commented on the issue.
