MONROE - A state statute meant to explain the definition of fireworks and where they can be used also limits the ability of city representatives who may wish to place stricter enforcement on those illegally setting off celebratory explosions. On June 6, former alderman Reid Stangel discussed fireworks safety with the Public Safety Committee. Stangel said a conversation surrounding what could be done to make the community safer had occurred nearly a year ago, but no changes had been made.
