The city of Homer’s curfew law most likely is unconstitutional, city attorney Lee Sharp said. The ordinance failed to except some forms of consitutionally protected conduct. The law prohibited children under the age of 18 from being on the streets between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. on week nights and 1 a.m. and 6 a.m. on weekends. Sharp reviewed the law in response to a request by council member Don Ronda. Homer Police Chief Mike Daugherty said police enforce the law more in the winter and less in the summer, when young people might be going to work early for fishing.
