BOCA RATON, FL ( — There is NO curfew in effect or, apparently, planned for the City of Boca Raton, despite information released by Palm Beach County.
In what will surely lead to a review of what agencies speak for the county in the days after Irma, The Boca Raton Police department has taken to FaceBook to say there is no curfew in the city. Police in Boca also say they will not enforce “mandatory evacuations.” The City of Boca Raton, of course, is its own municipality with its own police force and sets its own rules. It would seem Palm Beach County overstepped in announcing a county-wide curfew.
Boca Raton is in Palm Beach County, but stands alone as its own city.
The curfew, as of 9:40, is still set for 3pm for the rest of the county.
