Wichita may soon allow larger fireworks

November 28, 2017 - 11:46 pm

Wichita officials are considering a change in a local fireworks policy.  During a workshop meeting on Tuesday the city council and Fire Chief Tammy Snow met to consider changing the fireworks policy.

Current regulations only allow for novelty fireworks that don't travel over six feet when set off.

Chief Snow says this puts Wichita on an island, surrounded by other communities that follow state law, which allows much louder, class C consumer fireworks.

She told the council that it is very tough to enforce the city’s law because people buy them legally in nearby towns and bring them back into the city.

KSN News reports that the council agreed to take a closer look at the policy during a council meeting in December.
