Alderman Bob Mozol is seeking changes to how the city gives out permits for professional fireworks displays.
Referring to Ord. #66-518, Mozol is asking the Public Safety and Licensing Committee to change the city law to include a time frame, require the operator to be certified to shoot off professional-sized fireworks, and to raise the permit fee from $50 to at least $200.
Mozol's request comes in response to a fireworks show on Sept. 4 for a wedding on the city's north side. Some residents complained the show took place too late and was too loud.
The Public Safety and Licensing Committee is scheduled to take up the ordinance tonight.
