SEA ISLE CITY — After two summers’ worth of issues with rowdy teens, the city is instituting a 10 p.m. curfew for those under 18. “This is for the trouble makers,” said Mayor Leonard Desiderio. Young people with their parents or coming home from work would not be impacted.
This summer, teens in Sea Isle City, New Jersey, will not be able to wander the streets at night.
Starting on May 15, there will be a curfew for anyone under the age of 18.
Sea Isle City officials approved the new ordinance on Tuesday.
The curfew will be in effect from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. and will last until September 15.
Officials say the rule won’t apply if a teen is accompanied by a parent or a caretaker, or if they are coming home from work.
