Just guessing, but I'd have to say it's b/c the city has a lot less grassy areas. Out in the county, with this drought and upcoming heat wave, there's more of a chance for grass fires from fireworks. Can't say that I agree with this tho. It seems like every time something happens, there has to be some type of law created.

The city has ample fire departments fully staffed and can get anywhere within the city limits fairly quickly. I'm all for the burn ban. Just driving around Bowling Green, you can see spots where fireworks have already burned the dry grass. Especially near the water park. I work too hard for my house, and don't want to see it go up in flames due to kids/adults not responsibly using fireworks.

Sounds reasonable, but police should hold those responsible for causing the fires instead of creating yet another law. Too many laws are being created for simple issues. I'm for the burn ban too, but allowing fireworks in one area and not another isn't quite fair to those living in rural areas.

The ban should stay: Despite the rain the area is still far too dry for fireworks. To want to set them off in these conditions is purely selfish.
think they mean missouri

Maybe buchanon made him some money last night with his new law. Our whole city government is a joke.
