City Council to Revisit Fireworks Ordinance

Jul 7, 2017

On Monday, the Sioux City Council will reconsider its ordinance that allows several days for residents to discharge fireworks. The Iowa legislature legalized the private use of fireworks and cities in April.  Sioux City currently allows fireworks from June 25th until the 4th of July.   This morning at a city news conference, city councilor Dan Moore said he believed that the city allowed too many days for people to set off fireworks.
