(SALISBURY, Md.)- The Salisbury City Council chose not to move forward with a proposed city-wide curfew. Officials didn't completely rule the curfew out, but are asking for the public's opinion before voting on it.

The curfew was proposed in March after a recent spike in juvenile crimes. It would prevent children under 14 from being in a public place between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. Teenagers between 14 and 16 wouldn't be allowed in a public place from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. from the Friday before Memorial Day to the last Sunday of August.
