The Milton City Council unanimously approved Monday night a partial ban on fireworks to take effect in June 2011.

The new restrictions outlaw mortars and Roman candles. They also slash the number of days that fireworks can be ignited during the Independence Day season from eight days to only July 4. Starting next year, fireworks during the Indepedence Day season can only be discharged from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. on July 4.

The limits continue to allow the use of legal fireworks for New Year’s Eve – from 6 p.m. Dec. 31 through 1 a.m. Jan. 1.

  1. Thank you Milton City Council for creating a kinder gentler citizenry. You’ve done nothing but erode citizens rights.

    that’s bull crap!, milton has restricted fireworks because of a few whiny residents and idiot teenagers, nobody is going to obey the stupid ban, everybody is still going to light off fireworks that “go up and blow up” so the ban is pointless, and if those whiny residents don’t like the noise they can just move someplace where all fireworks are outlawed so they won’t have to worry about it!, us milton residents do not like our 4th of july screwed up for us!
