Superior Mayor Issues Note About Fourth Of July Fireworks
Superior Mayor Jim Paine has issued a note to residents regarding the upcoming holiday.
Of course, the Fourth of July is a huge holiday where people get outside, grill and watch fireworks.
While this is part of the holiday fun, Mayor Paine wants to make sure everyone is being safe, responsible and of course, respectful. He posted a long message on the topic on his Facebook page Monday. Here's what he had to say on the topic:
Fireworks are going to be a sensitive subject over the next week. I know many of you spend a lot of money on them through Independence Day and that this supports a small pop-up market over the summer. But please, on behalf of your neighbors, be safe, responsible, and reasonable with your pyrotechnics and make sure to follow the law. Fireworks that shoot into the air and excessive noise after 11 pm are illegal and police will be patrolling over the next week to enforce these rules. If someone in your neighborhood is abusing these rules, please call 911, which is the fastest way to get a response. Finally, please remember that your fireworks might be fun for you, but they can be deeply traumatic for veterans, Senior Citizens, and people with sensory issues. Consider letting the City handle the fireworks show this year. I promise it will be awesome.
