I'll help you this one time, but it is a bit lazy of you not to look it up yourself.
The Municipal Code of the City of Troy, Missouri
SECTION 210.590: CURFEW FOR PERSONS UNDER SEVENTEEN
A. It shall be unlawful for any person under the age of seventeen (17) years to be in or upon any public place or way within the City of Troy between the hours of 12:01 A.M. and 6:00 A.M. The provisions of this Section shall not apply to any such persons accompanied by a parent or guardian, to any such person upon an errand or other legitimate business directed by such person's parent or guardian, to any such person who is engaged in gainful, lawful employment during said time period, or who is returning or in route to said employment, or to any such person who is attending or in route to or from any organized religious or school activity.
B. Responsibility Of Parent. The parent, guardian or other adult person having the care and custody of a person under the age of seventeen (17) years shall not knowingly permit such person to violate this Section.
C. Notice To Parent. Any Law Enforcement Officer finding any person under the age of seventeen (17) years violating the provisions of this Section shall warn such person to desist immediately from such violation and shall promptly report the violation to his/her superior officer who shall cause a written notice to be served upon the parent, guardian or person in charge of such person setting forth the manner in which this Section has been violated. Any parent, guardian or person in charge of such person who shall knowingly permit such person to violate the provisions of this Section, after receiving notice of the first (1st) violation, shall be guilty of an offense.
D. Service Of Notice. The written notice provided in Subsection (C) may be served by leaving a copy thereof at the residence of such parent, guardian or person in charge of the person in violation of this Section with any person found at such residence over the age of seventeen (17) years or by mailing such notice to the last known address of such parent, guardian or person in charge of such person, wherever such person may be found.

You can write all ordinances, statutes and laws you want. Unless they are enforced, they are not worth the time it takes to pass them.

Oh, I agree.
And, I think this ordinance agrees.
The curfew is written to where the Parents are accountable.
My question would be, why do we need Government to do the job Parents should be doing?
Perhaps because Parents aren't?
