According to officials, a violation can result in a fine up to $500, confinement in jail up to 100 days or both.

This curfew was put into place by emergency declaration after a peaceful protest regarding the alleged murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis turned into a riot Saturday night, resulting in looting, vandalism, and destruction.

In a statement, city manager pro tem Sarah Medary said: "Last night, individuals took advantage of a peaceful protest in response to the death of George Floyd, to inflict damage and destruction on our community. That’s not acceptable. The City fully supports the rights of the protesters and free speech, we do not support illegal behavior that puts our local businesses and community members in harm’s way.”
