City Fireworks Ban

With the state passing a law that allowed fireworks to be sold within city limits, it put the city in a very difficult situation.  I approached this matter with an open mind and tried to share experiences from living in South Texas where consumer fireworks were allowed but also looked at other Iowa communities and restrictions that could've been put in place to find a middle ground.  Injuries can happen whether fireworks are used legally or illegally.  Education is key and was something I advocated for in addition to specific day and time restrictions plus greater fines and enforcement when they were used outside of the allowed day and time restrictions.
