Curfew coming for minors in Gypsum
Gyspum, CO Colorado
GYPSUM, Colorado – Gypsum Town Council is expected to approve a curfew for minors at the next council meeting, Tuesday.
If the ordinance is approved, minors in Gypsum will have a curfew from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. seven days a week.
Children will be allowed to break curfew if:
• The minor is accompanied by a parent or is legally emancipated or married.
• Engaged in an activity necessary for their lawful employment.
• Traveling directly to or from their home for employment purposes.
• Traveling to or from a school activity
• Engaging in activity necessary to assist an emergency.
• Traveling for a religious activity.
• Traveling through the town to go interstate or intrastate with the permission of a guardian
• If the minor is prevented from complying with the curfew for a reason beyond their control.
“Officers are going to use their discretion,” said the council member.
The maximum penalty for breaking curfew would be set at no more then $1,000 per offense and no more then one year in jail. However Bob Cole, the town attorney, said the likely penalty would be a $300 fine.
