City council drops fireworks law it considered


Last updated 2/19/2020 at 9:26am

An ordinance banning fireworks from Electric City that was being considered has been dropped by the city council.

At their Feb. 11 council meeting, the matter was discussed by council members, Fire Chief Mark Payne, and more, that since most fireworks that draw complaints from people are already illegal, such as rockets that may land on somebody’s roof, it didn’t make sense to make something illegal that was already illegal, like wearing a hat on a hat.

Councilmember Brian Buche expressed a concern over how to enforce such an ordinance.

The idea that banning fireworks from the city completely could drive people out into the dry surrounding lands was also a concern.

Councilmember Cheryl Hoffman moved to reject the ordinance, Buche seconded, and the council voted 4-0 in support of the motion.
