Laurel, Delaware Town Council takes up curfew at apartment complex

The mayor and members of town council in Laurel may decide tonight whether to extend a curfew imposed on non-residents of the Carvel Gardens apartments.

The emergency measure was taken in February in response to an outbreak of criminal activity at the complex.  Non-residents were not permitted to be on the grounds of the Carvel Gardens apartments between 10 p.m. and six a.m. unless they have a previously arranged visitors’ pass.  Police said at the time that they believed visitors from the surrounding area were responsible for much of the crime, not so much the residents themselves.  Council meets tonight at 7:00 p.m. at Laurel Town Hall, 201 Mechanic Street.
