Push to restrict fireworks fizzles



A Seymour woman’s attempt to reduce the number of days people can set off fireworks in the city has come up short.

But Tania Wiseman isn’t giving up yet.

The Seymour City Council has reviewed its fireworks ordinance and decided not to change it after Wiseman presented a petition last month with more than 60 signatures on it.

City attorney Rodney Farrow said the city’s regulations meet the minimal requirements as outlined by Indiana’s fireworks laws.

“We are as restrictive as we can be under state law,” he said. “We can’t be more restrictive. Our statute follows state law. There is nothing we can do.”
