Muskego OKs fireworks permits for three residents

June 27, 2012

In its first use since Muskego revised its fireworks ordinance last year, the Finance Committee reviewed the applications of three residents who want a city permit to have fireworks displays this Fourth of July, but who had a problem last year.

A complaint had been lodged against two of them and the third got a ticket for not having a permit.

The Finance Committee reviewed the three permit applications, which is one of the new provisions in the ordinance. City officials put in a Finance Committee review as an extra layer of supervision for those whose fireworks displays attract a complaint or even a ticket.

The committee ended up approving all three permits.

Mayor Kathy Chiaverotti said the new system seems to be working as intended - to help neighbors find common ground.

"I think it's helpful to have that conversation," she said.

Muskego is the only community in the metropolitan area that allows private citizens to have a fireworks display, providing they have permits.
