Burlington Mayor Marianne Meed Ward is reminding residents that fireworks are not permitted this upcoming long weekend.
Meed Ward addressed this in a recent interview with inhalton.com‘s Khaled Iwamura, where she was asked about enforcement ahead of the weekend.
“The first thing that I will say, is that fireworks are not allowed. Please do not buy them,” said Meed Ward.
The Mayor proceeded to state that fireworks can only be purchased in the City of Burlington six days ahead of the two holidays that do permit fireworks, which are Canada Day and Victoria Day.
“Those are the only two days in the calendar year when you can set up personal private fireworks in your backyard. For anything else including parks, you need a permit and that you can get from the fire department,” confirmed Meed Ward.
“So, please,” said Meed Ward, “If you have any extra leftover from the last time you were at the fireworks store, don’t set them off. It disturbs pets and it disturbs people to have random booming, cracking and popping going off and it is also a fire hazard.”insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
