Curbing Private Fireworks Displays in Wilkes Barre

July 13, 2018 - 9:26 am

Aerial fireworks in Wilkes Barre could soon be left to the professionals. At last night's City Council meeting, Wilkes Barre Fire Chief Jay Delaney was among those who spoke about concerns for safety in the city since the recent change in state law allowed the sale and use of more powerful fireworks throughout the state. Council approved the ordinance that would prohibit their used within city limits on the first reading and is scheduled for a second and final reading next month. If approved it would go into effect 10 days later.
