To Make Permanent the Curfew for Minors in Hudson Falls, New York sign now

We, the undersigned residents of the Village of Hudson Falls, New York, do hereby petition the Village Board of Trustees to make permanent the curfew for minors that was enacted on June 19, 2004, when it is up for review at the meeting of the Village Board on June 13, 2005.

We understand that during the eleven years that this curfew was debated, those who were against it expressed certain misgivings about the curfew, but they have not materialized. Thanks to the curfew, our streets are quiet at night, and the village enjoyed the first trouble-free Cabbage Night and Halloween in recent memory. Even the Chief of Police, James Clarey, has stated that the curfew works.

To those who may have constitutional objections to the curfew, it should be pointed out that communities in the areaincluding Fort Edward Village, Corinth Village and Saratoga Springshave had similar curfews in place for years and they have been successful. Even larger communities in this nation like Detroit have similar curfews.

Nevertheless, having a curfew should not serve as a deterrent to Mayor Carters suggestion of setting up a youth center for the children of the village, and we encourage him to talk to Kingsbury Town Supervisor Terry B. Gould and the Kingsbury Town Board about making this a joint town-village effort because there are children who live outside the village who could benefit from such a center themselves.

We therefore encourage the Village Board in voting favorably on making the curfew in the village permanent. It has proven it works and it should be made permanent.
