Wichita gets serious about fireworks law

 


WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita city leaders are promising to levy fines for people who violate the fireworks ordinance — and this year, they say, they mean it.

The Wichita Eagle reports that fireworks sales in the city start Wednesday. Mayor Jeff Longwell says that the city is taking a more serious approach in assuring that people shoot off only legal fireworks.

Those who don't could face a $250 fine. Longwell says that in previous years the fine was $2,500, but the law was seldom if ever enforced.

This year, with the lower fine, he promises that violators will be ticketed.
