Cedar Falls votes to ban fireworks

Posted: Updated:

A vote took place Monday night to ban fireworks from being set off in Cedar Falls.

The Committee of the Whole voted four to two to support a ban.

Police Chief Jeff Olson talked to the committee Monday night about the number of fireworks complaints this summer, and the challenges his officers face as they investigate complaints. Olson said they had more than 60 reports called in by people who live in Cedar Falls.

After the committee's vote, the city will now work on writing an ordinance that will go before the city council.
