A CURFEW to stop gangs of youths terrorising Mirfield after dark could be announced next week.
Desperate residents asked police chiefs to look at the situation last April after a spate of anti-social behaviour and vandalism in the town.
At the Mirfield area committee meeting in 2004, residents also demanded answers on a change in local laws to stop boozy teens causing havoc.
Worried residents have also called for alleys to be gated off to combat vandalism.
Mirfield councillor Martyn Bolt said he was hopeful of getting both answers and solutions at a meeting to be held on Monday.
He added: "At the time a curfew had just been announced in Wigton in Cumbria and residents asked if it would work here."
Clr Bolt said he hoped police had thoroughly studied the area's problems.
"If there's a demand in the area based on police records then I hope we could look at it," he added.
The meeting is at 7pm on Monday at the Salvation Army HQ in Huddersfield Road, Mirfield.
