Schenectady City Council Imposes Big Fines for Fireworks

posted by WGY News -

With the 4th of July just around the corner, Schenectady City Council is making it very expensive to set off fireworks in the city. 

They've approved a $250 fine per firework. 

The measure also allows police to confiscate fireworks or any of the devices used to launch them.  

The County Legislature approved a ban on sparklers and ground-based fireworks in April.
