Reworked rules on fireworks

July 24, 2013

Independence Township has amended a policy restricting the use of fireworks with the exception of holidays.

Under the revised policy, residents may not discharge fireworks except if a special permit is obtained or from 8 a.m.-midnight during holidays, 1 a.m. on New Year's Day. The policy was first adopted in 2012.

Violations of the policy can result in a civil infraction, fines and payment of any fees resulting from the issue. Officials may also seize fireworks. For more information call 248-625-5115.
