Kalamazoo Commission approves restrictions on use of fireworks this 4th of July


KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The City of Kalamazoo has adopted an ordinance to ban the use of fireworks from midnight to 8 a.m. during the upcoming 4th of July holiday and voted to give it immediate effect.

City Attorney Clyde Robinson says other cities including Grand Rapids, Holland and Portage have put similar bans in place after an explosion of complaints from people trying to get to sleep.

The City plans to publicize the ordinance as much as they can between now and the holiday to let people know that it’s not only the neighborly thing to do, but it’s a $500 fine if they get caught.
