Ordinance will limit fireworks in Ludington

August 26, 2013

LUDINGTON — Ludington City Council will hold a first reading tonight of a new ordinance that will put some restrictions on the use of fireworks during national holidays.

The city’s ordinance already limits the use of consumer fireworks to the hours of 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. But, a state law passed last year over-rides that ordinance during the 10 national holidays and the day before and day after each holiday. The state law allows the use of consumer fireworks. However, in May the state legislature amended the law to allow municipalities to regulate the use between 1 and 8 a.m.

Scottville City Commission passed a similar ordinance last week.

Ludington’s ordinance, like Scottville’s, will prohibit the use of consumer fireworks between 1 to 8 a.m.

City Council meets at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall, 400 S. Harrison St.
