MOBILE, Alabama — Nearly three months after Mobile approved a teen curfew, the city of Prichard is considering a curfew of its own.
Councilman Troy Ephriam introduced an ordinance earlier this month nearly identical to the one the Mobile City Council approved in October.
The ordinance would:
* Bar those under the age of 18 from remaining in public spaces after 11 p.m. on school nights and midnight on Fridays and Saturdays and on holidays.
* Bar those under 18 from Prichard’s downtown area after 10 p.m. every day.
* Bar those under the age of 17 from congregating and remaining in public places between 9 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. on school days.
