Genoa Residents Firing Complaints About Fireworks Law

7/8/14 - The 4th of July holiday may be over but the frustration being felt by residents and municipalities is far from finished. The Genoa Township met Monday night and some members expressed that they’re just as frustrated as anyone else following the change in state law allowing the use of consumer grade fireworks. While some revel in shooting them off and putting on elaborate displays, others liken the noise in neighborhoods to war zones and want them banned or restricted. It was reported during the meeting that there have been numerous calls and complaints about fireworks going off at all hours, particularly from those who live on lakes and subdivisions throughout the township. Genoa Township does not currently have any ordinance regulating the use of fireworks and Supervisor Gary McCririe says that’s because it’s no easy feat. He tells WHMI the township regularly fields a myriad of complaints from those in the community who are experiencing discourteous neighbors shooting off fireworks. He says it’s difficult to regulate how to be a good neighbor or courteous behavior and recommends residents contact their state legislators who are responsible for the new law. (JM)
