Rockland Legislature Opening Discussion on Legal Fireworks

The Rockland County Legislature will be discussing the proposed bill that would allow hand-held sparklers, and smaller sparklers or poppers, to be sold in the county. The sale of fireworks has been permitted in parts of New York State over this past year, but specifies dates they are allowed to be in stores. For the summer months smaller fireworks can be bought from June 1 to July 5 and in the winter months from December 26 to January 2. Many people in Rockland County have been opposed to the sale of larger fireworks, including officials but the proposed bill, titled “The Sparkler Act” is supported by Chairman Alden Wolfe, as well as Republican Minority Leader Chris Carey. Wolfe stated to the Journal News that fire officials have not expressed any safety concerns regarding sparklers in the county. The meeting will be held tomorrow night at 7:05 at the County Office Building in New City.
