hours of 9:00p.m. and 6:00 a.m.; provided, however, that the provisions of this section shall not apply to the following:

a) To a minor accompanied by a parent, guardian, custodian or other adult person having custody or control of such minor;

b) To a minor who is on an emergency errand or specific business or activity directed or permitted by his parent, guardian or other adult person having the care and custody of the minor;

c) To a minor whose presence is connected with or required by some legitimate employment, trade, profession or occupation.”

Unaccompanied minors contacted in violation of this ordinance, and their parents or guardians, will be held accountable.
