Township Waiting for Ordinance To Ban Fireworks


KALAMAZOO TOWNSHIP , MI (WKZO) --  Kalamazoo Township officials have asked their attorney to draft an ordinance to ban fireworks for the 335 days out of the year, when they are permitted under the new state law to have some local regulation.

Supervisor Ron Reid says the state law gives residents free reign to do whatever they want during the day before, the day of, and the day after ten standing holidays.

It was clear from last night’s comments from Supervisor Ron Reid wishes they could go further, but the state law prevents them from addressing abuses during those holiday periods.

The Township board will take up the ordinance as soon as their lawyer can draft it.
