The mayor of Green Forest would like to make shooting off fireworks in town a thing of the past.
At its meeting Monday night, Green Forest Mayor Charles Reece addressed the council. While he had good things to say about the city’s Patriot’s Day celebration, he said he feels the shooting off of fireworks by individuals in town is getting out of hand…
Reece cited a number of complaints by citizens about fireworks. He said one home nearly burned to the ground on the 4th because of stray fireworks.
