Wanchick issues “executive order” establishes 8:00 p.m. curfew

Historic City News has learned that, although he is not an elected public official, St Johns County Administrator Michael Wanchick has signed an “executive order” establishing a curfew that will be enforced by deputies and municipal police in St Johns County lying east of the Intracoastal Waterway on the barrier islands.

The curfew is in effect from at 8:00 p.m. tonight until 6:00 a.m. on Friday, October 7. The curfew will remain in effect nightly until further notice.

“This order mandates that anyone on the street may be required to produce identification to law enforcement officers to verify their address and purpose for being in the area,” Wanchick wrote.
