The town of Bruderheim has officially put a curfew in place for teens 15 years old and under.
The new bylaw put in place will see a $100 fine for parents who don’t abide by those rules, even if the teens sneak out.
Bruderheim Mayor Karl Hauch says council is trying to make the community safer all around.
Millet mayor Tony Wadsworth spoke on The Ryan Jespersen Show and says the teenagers and kids in Millet were causing so many problems, it pushed the town to have a curfew from 10:00 pm to 6:00 am.
“In addition parents will be fined 150 dollars for a first offense,” says Wadsworth. “Though we were quite surprised. The parents of the community were quite supportive of the action that council took. Despite the fact that some parents may be liable for some fines it was a great degree of support for the initiative.”
Wadsworth says it’s working great with the community, with no known fines given out. He says they were just minor incidents.
