South Hutch council to send survey on proposal to limit fireworks

At its meeting Tuesday, South Hutchinson City Council tabled a proposal so it would have time to conduct a survey regarding the public’s thoughts on regulating the city’s fireworks to be more like Hutchinson’s.

The proposal would prohibit fireworks discharging farther than 6 feet in any direction. The fireworks that would be allowed in the city are commonly known as “Safe and Sane.”

The council will discuss the proposed ordinance again at its meeting at 7 p.m., March 21 at City Hall, 2 S Main St. The city hopes to have survey responses before the date so its council members can review the response from a more broad audience than was presented at Tuesday’s meeting.

City Attorney Don Gottschalk reminded those in the audience that the survey wouldn’t be binding, rather just informational and something the council would use as a guide in future actions.
