South Sioux City city council sets new fireworks ordinance
Michelle Kuester
Dakota County Star Editor

After months of discussion, the South Sioux City city council set a new ordinance restricting the use of fireworks. The vote was seven to one, with Bruce Davis dissenting.

Fireworks are now permitted within city limits only from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. July 1-5 and from 8 a.m. on Dec. 31 to 1 a.m. Jan. 1.

Violators will receive a ticket to appear in court and pay a fee up to $500.

Davis expressed concern that local children will miss out on fun celebrating the holiday, but the other council members agreed that five days was enough.

“I don't think cutting it to five days is going to stop anyone's fun,” Councilman John Sanders said.
