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.
