Zeeland Latest City to Add New Regulations on Fireworks

2011 state law lifted restrictions on using many kinds of fireworks.
The city of Zeeland is the latest Michigan municipality to enact its own fireworks restrictions.While there have been few problems in Zeeland, council members said Monday night that they wanted to head off complaints heard from residents in more dense neighborhoods, such as those in Holland."We had fireworks since the last of April, every night, heading into Memorial Day and of course after that it hasn't quit," said Sally Anderson, who lives in Holland.
