CARMEL, Ind. (WTHR) — Carmel residents no longer have to abide by a curfew.

Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard said on Wednesday that the curfew for the town has been lifted.

“After conferring this afternoon with the Police Chief, I feel that we can safely lift the restrictions on travel throughout the community. However, I will not hesitate to reissue a curfew if the need arises. I appreciate the cooperation and understanding of the community as we navigate this new territory together,” said Mayor Brainard.

On Tuesday, Mayor Brainard announced a mandatory curfew from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. each day until further notice.

According to Carmel Police Chief Jim Barlow the community had received threats, which is why the curfew was put into place.

The Mayor said that though the curfew is lifted, the town's Disaster Emergency Declaration issued on June 1, is still in effect.
