The Curfew Bylaw was passed to regulate the time after which children shall not be in a public place at night without proper guardianship. The Curfew Bylaw is to assist parents and legal guardians in exercising authority over their children to keep their children safe from harm. The Town of Fox Creek Council is committed to preserving a community quality of life which emphasizes individual safety of children, and well being as well as the protection from harm of public and private property.
No child (17 years of age or under) shall be in a public place within the limits of the Town after the hour of 11:00 pm and before the hour of 6:00 am the following day without proper Adult Guardianship or a Legitimate Excuse. Any child that is found in a public place during these hours is guilty of an offence and is liable to receive a fine of not less than $100.00 dollars. The Guardian that has allowed the child to be in a public place during these hours is also liable for a fine not less than $100.00 dollars.
