Before the Tomball City Council can decide if minors can stay out after midnight, they’ll take public comments on a proposed ordinance. The council will vote whether to keep, change or drop the ordinance during its upcoming regular meetings scheduled on March 4 and 18. According to law, any city that has an ordinance has to review it every three years. The current ordinance states the curfew would apply to minors who are 17 or younger between midnight to 6 a.m. during everyday of the week. The curfew also applies between 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. during weekdays. The council will take written comments at city hall until Wednesday, Feb. 27 for the upcoming March 4 meeting. Before the March 18 meeting, written comments can be submitted until March 13. Residents can also sign up to speak during both of the scheduled regular meetings to give feedback on the ordinance. The written comments can be submitted to the city secretary at 401 Market St.
