Marshal intends to enforce curfew

STAUNTON -- Town Marshal Chuck Jones informed the Staunton Town Council he intends to enforce curfew this summer.

During the council's monthly meeting Monday, Jones said he is patrolling later in the evening watching for those who are in violation of the town's curfew.

"I will be enforcing curfew," Jones said. "I want them to know that. I'll be out later (in the evenings)."

Jones said he issues a warning to first-time violators before delivering citations.

He said the town follows state curfew times. According to Indiana Code 31-37, curfew violations for children 15-17 include not being in a public place between 1-5 a.m., Saturday or Sunday, after 11 p.m., Sunday-Thursday, or before 5 a.m., Monday-Friday.

Curfew violations for children 15-under include not being in a public place after 11 p.m., or before 5 a.m., on any day.

Meanwhile, the council unanimously approved a motion to continue its relationship with Gin's Lawn Mowing, Staunton.

A new contract with the mowing service called for an increase on the price for the area near the town's water plan. The mowing service will now be paid $380 monthly.

In other news, the council approved the final payment for Commonwealth Engineers, Inc., Indianapolis, and McCalister Brothers Sewer and Septic Service, based in Vigo County. The two companies had been working on the town's Storm Drainage Improvement Project, which was completed earlier this year.

The final payment of $10,225 was unanimously approved.

"All projects are done," Council President Andy Kirchner said.

Prior to the conclusion of the meeting, council members were asked if they were still considering a town-wide cleanup day, to which they responded it is being considered, but no concrete date has been set.

The Staunton Town Council meets regularly on the second Monday of each month at the Staunton Community Center. Its next meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m., Monday, July 11.
