I am hearing conflicting stories about the rules about fireworks in town. Can I get the real scoop on what's okay and whats not?

As of now, nothing is legal in either the city or the county. On Monday at noon, the City Council will meet in special session to decide if fireworks can be set off in designated parks at designated times.

Blowing poop up on the 4th of July has nothing to do with "celebrating our freedom" and everything to do with creating a public nuisance and a safety hazard. Pressure your city councilperson to uphold the ordinance prohibiting personal fireworks within the city limits.

I would just as soon they ban them. Even when they have designated areas, many people don't use common sense. Since I live close to a designated area and see the lack of common sense each year, I would like them to ban them. Sorry if you're one who is responsible, but you nor I can help those who are not. I don't want my house to burn down while someone says, "oops, I didn't mean for that to happen."

Agree with bigskykj. I too live close to one of the designated areas and would not be horribly upset if fireworks were banned. Even on a good year, its ridiculous how irresponsible some people are with fireworks. Even small ones that don't fly around can start a fire. And the majority of people who set them off in these designated areas don't bother to clean them up when they're done.

Not to be a party pooper, but this might be a good year for people to have to learn some responsibility and sensibility and not have fireworks.

I have lived in Miles City since 1972. With maybe a few exceptions, to my recollection, Miles City has always had a ban on fireworks.

The police seemed to be more tolerant of them, but I can remember having officers coming over and stopping us for shooting off fire works in town. My father always took us out to a old shale digsite to shoot ours off.

I have always been puzzled as to why they would allow stands to sell fireworks in the city limits when they didn't want them shot off in town.

I hear fireworks going off daily now, and have seen kids (young kids) shooting them off near an area with brown dry grass that is nearly a foot tall.

I have been nervous about the fireworks as I am sure many other miles city residents have, but I have refrained from calling in. I just hope that we get through the July 4th holiday without any major fires like we have been hearing of throughout our state and country.

It does seem like the same questions get raised every year, "What is the status on fireworks in the city?" It also seems there is always people who don't care or who do not take the time to follow through with checking the rules/bans in place and shoot them off anyway.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th.

If people handled fireworks responsibly, there would be no problem. However, common sense and gun powder do not seem to go together a whole lot of the time.

Fireworks are a waste of money and resources anyway, you get a moments enjoyment out of them, that's it.

You can credit your being able to post on here to someone enjoying a moments enjoyment.

Statements like these are just one more step down the slippery slope to Communism.

Last four posts are spot on...

( edit: the fourth was added in my time in typing the below..lol.. might as well include that one too!)

... and in my opinion, they reflect on just not this thread, but the other fireworks threads also, even some NON fireworks threads they can apply.

Sure, common sense takes precedent. I, for one, will be deeply bummed if we cannot shoot off some fireworks, as it has been a staple for my family since we moved here in 2006. I can understand and support the safety aspect of it all. We always shot them off in a designated area, and from what I have seen, I HAVEN'T seen anyone in these areas NOT use common sense and application of safety.

A few bad apples seem to reflect the OVERALL mentality of the people of Miles City, according to some posters here.

Does the oppressive attitude of some of these same posters reflect the overall opinions of people here in Miles City?

We left California back in '96, moved to Oklahoma City. That city/state, to me, was/is turning into another California.

Is Montana heading in the same direction?

I like the individuality feeling of the State as a whole. In my opinion, we are one of the few states left that give us and allow us to have the freedoms that our forefathers fought for. What our current armed forces fight for.

This is Montana, dammit! This is America! Feel proud and make an attempt to try and make others feel the Air of Freedom that comes with stepping outside in this city.

Lol.. I guess I rambled... stick tongue out

but...

With the back and forth on these forums and the actions of some people that other people say they see, which I sometimes see also, it CAN be conceived as a slippery slope.

Be careful,and however the ruling comes by this week concerning fireworks, celebrate with common sense.

The one thing most people here mentions is common sense. That may be the key. I believe the people with commom sense weren't going to use the fireworks anyway. All the common sense in the world can not stop an errant spark and wind.

"Some patriots just want to watch the world burn"

Sadly applicable to more than just this thread.

I hate how people are saying 4th Of July is ruined due to no fireworks. Does anyone really remember what it's about anymore? Go spend time with your family and friends. It's a day of joy. Just because you can't watch things explode doesn't mean your holiday is ruined. I personally agree with the ban 100%. I like living. (:

fellow yesterday was using a metal grinder (which was against the burn ban in Yellowstone County) and set off a forest fire near Laurel...Just checked and if it is the Dry Creek Fire near Laurel is many hundreds of acres and not contained at all...so obviously doesn't take much...please use common sense and respect the beautiful Montana that we all live in...

A couple of days ago, the BNSF was happily sending out a track grinder. Seriously? They were told, no, not such a good idea.
