City alters Port Arthur juvenile curfew rules
The juvenile curfew ordinance in Port Arthur is going to be enforced as written, with one minor edit.
Between the curfew hours of 11 p.m.-6 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and midnight-6 a.m. Friday (overnight) and Saturday, each child under the age of 17 must be within the premises of his or her residence.
The ordinance, which was last updated in 2017, previously listed a minor being on the sidewalk of the residence as one of the 10 defenses against violation, but language related to sidewalks is now stricken.
The Port Arthur City Council voted unanimously to update the ordinance during Thursday’s special meeting.
