Fireworks restricted in cities of Ludington and Scottville. 

As the Independence Day holiday approaches, Ludington and Scottville police departments are reminding people that both cities have restrictions on fireworks.

While Michigan state law allows for the launching and use of fireworks on federal holidays, along with the day before and day after, the law also allows municipalities to put some restrictions on fireworks usage. Both Scottville and Ludington have ordinances that ban the use of fireworks during those days between 1 to 8 a.m.

Fireworks are also not allowed on any type of public property, including streets, sidewalks and city or school parking lots.

With the exception of the above mentioned dates, fireworks are banned in Scottville city limits.

A $500 fine could be issued for violations in either city.
