Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – The Marquette Police Department is getting the word out about the City of Marquette’s updated fireworks ordinance prior to the 4th of July holiday.
Chief Blake Rieboldt and Capt. Mike Laurila joined the Sunny Morning Show today to talk about the ordinance and a few other things to keep in mind as the holiday approaches.
Laurila said the updated city ordinance closely reflects recent updates to the Michigan fireworks law, but there are a few differences.
He said the key things to remember are the dates and times that are in the city’s ordinance wherein 4th of July fireworks can be shot off, which are June 29th through July 5th from 11:00am to 11:45pm.
Rieboldt also talked about the rules and regulations concerning having parties on the city’s beaches and parks, and encouraged anyone who is thinking about having a beach get-together to simply use common sense and stay safe and legal.
