HOLLAND, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Fireworks in Holland could soon only be seen and heard during 30 specific days of the year.
According to the Holland Sentinel, Wednesday night the Holland City Council will hold a public hearing and final vote for limiting fireworks in the city.
The ordinance change came after the State of Michigan changed its long-standing law to legalize fireworks that leave the ground and make loud noises.
If the ordinance in Holland is approved it would only allow fireworks on the nation's 10 holidays plus the day before and after each holiday.
A second ordinance would also limit the hours that fireworks can be set off.
That public hearing will be held Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m.
