ALLOUEZ, Wis. (WFRV) – The Village of Allouez has extended its curfew through Monday, June 8, after their original curfew was sent to expire Thursday morning.
According to an amended proclamation, Village President James Rafter says “an emergency exists within the Village of Allouez and the greater Green Bay area resulting from civil commotion, disturbances, looting, and rioting.”
He goes on to explain that after “the peaceful assembly of persons exercising their First Amendment right to protest ended at approximately 10:00 p.m. in the City of Green Bay,” others “began to act in a manner that resulted in the dispersal of disruptive individuals into the greater Green Bay area that disrupted the safety and good order in those areas.”
Within the order, Rafter says the curfew in the Village of Allouez is necessary to limit pedestrian and vehicle travel to “stop the looting of property damage to private and public property in the Village.”
Rafter says, “because of such emergency conditions, the Village Board is unable to meet with promptness.”
The order declares a local State of Emergency for the Village of Allouez and orders an emergency curfew throughout the village from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. beginning Wednesday, June 3, and ending on Monday, June 8, unless extended.
“Police action will be directed towards people who are gathering as a mass and/or are engaged in illegal conduct. Police will not cite/arrest residents who are engaged in lawful activity. Businesses may be open during the curfew.”
The Village of Bellevue announced it would hold off on extending its curfew through the weekend, but that it is prepared to impose a curfew if needed. The City of Green Bay decided Tuesday night to extend its curfew through Monday.
