Councilors in Highlands East are interested in having a by-law for the use of fireworks. In yesterday’s meeting, Deputy-Reeve Suzanne Partridge said that a lot of people have shared their concerns about environmental impact, safety, and frequency of fireworks.

Fire Chief Bill Wingrove talked about other areas that have by-laws banning the use of fireworks outside of holidays. Councilors agreed that while it’s a good idea, it would be almost impossible to enforce.

Wingrove and the municipality’s by-law officer will be doing more research to come up with a solution.
