City Council Passes New Curfew for Minors

At a special meeting on April 3, 2020, Ludlow City Council passed an emergency ordinance amending the curfew for minors during the COVID-19 global pandemic.  

Under the new curfew, it shall be unlawful for any minor to be upon streets, sidewalks, parks, playgrounds, public places and vacant lots, or to ride in or upon, drive or otherwise operate or be a passenger in any automobile, bicycle, or other vehicle in, upon, over or through the streets, or other public places between the hours of 9:00 PM and 6:00 AM on Monday through Sunday evenings.  

The minor curfew ordinance does not apply in the following circumstances:
1. At any time a minor is accompanied by a parent, or by a responsible adult authorized by a parent to take the parent’s place to accompany the minor for a designated period of time and purpose within a specified area;
2. If the minor is employed in a position that requires him or her to travel to the workplace, for a period of time 45 minutes after work provided that circumstances suggest the minor is returning from work to a place of residence;
3. At any time the minor is required to leave a residence because of an emergency; or
4. At any time the minor is on a legitimate parentally approved errand.

A minor who violates a provision of this section is guilty of a separate offense for each day or part of a day during which the violation is committed, continued, or permitted. Each offense, upon conviction, is punishable by a fine not to exceed Two-Hundred and Fifty ($250.00) Dollars.

This minor curfew will remain in effect until the statewide State of Emergency declared by Governor Andy Beshear is terminated.
