The City Council will vote Monday afternoon on amending Sioux City’s fireworks ordinance.

The council will consider shortening the time residents may set off fireworks to July 3 through July 4 from the hours of 1:00 P.M. until 11:00 P.M; and from December 31 from 1:00 P.M. until 12:30 A.M. on January 1st.

Councilman Alex Watters thinks shortening the time to shoot off the skyrockets and firecrackers is a good compromise:

OC……..beneficial to everyone. :16

Watters knows the ordinance won’t please everyone whether it’s changed or not:

OC…..best approach. :14

Currently, discharge of fireworks is permitted within the city from June 25th through July 4th from 1:00 P.M. until 10:00 P.M; and December 30th through January 1st from 1:00 P.M. until 10:00 P.M.

The council meeting begins at 4pm at city hall.
