The city of South Haven is reminding everyone of the rules regarding fireworks now that Fourth of July is getting close. The police department tells us, in 2012, the Michigan Fireworks Safety Act legalized the sale, possession, and use of consumer fireworks in the state. However, the law has been since modified to allow local governments for more control of when fireworks may be used. The city of South Haven has restricted fireworks use to the day before, the day of, and the day after a national holiday, except between the hours of 1:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. In other words, next month, you’ll be allowed to use fireworks on the Fourth of July, or on the day before or after it from 8 a.m. to 1 a.m. Anyone looking for clarification should call the police department.
