Decorah, Iowa – The 4th of July was a blast in Iowa this year as fireworks were more prevalent than ever before in Iowa. People were buying, selling and launching them into the night sky. A northeast Iowa town recently changed their law a little bit.
The Decorah City Council approved the updated fireworks ordinance at their last meeting. From this comes a new exception to the new ordinance. The city can grant permits to groups or organizations that are approved by city officials. Also, if people intend to sell, they must inform the city manager or zoning administrator as to where they will be selling.
This change was proposed by the council’s public safety committee and only one council member voted against the changes to the law.
