Rumford has a new fireworks ordinance

RUMFORD — As private Fourth of July celebrations loom, Town Manager Carlo Puiia wants to remind residents that voters ratified a new Fireworks Ordinance on June 11.

Its provisions are now enforceable.

Some of the more humorous provisions are as follows:

* Consumer fireworks shall not be ignited by any person under the age of 21. This provision would exclude 90% of the population using fireworks.

* Consumer fireworks shall not be ignited by any person under the influence of alcohol or drugs. lol!  Yeah, right...it's the 4th!

* Consumer fireworks shall not be ignited within 50 feet of any structure, overhead utilities or woodlands.  Are there deserts in Maine...oh yeah, in Freeport.

* All consumer fireworks users are required to have a means for extinguishing a fire readily accessible, including, but not limited to, a garden hose or a fire extinguisher. lol! 

* Consumer fireworks shall only be discharged between the hours of noon and 10 p.m., except on July 4, Dec. 31 and the weekends immediately before and after July 4 and Dec. 31, when they can be discharged between noon and 12:30 a.m. Apparently, people can't tell time, or just don't care.

I personally witnessed every provision (except fire danger days) of Rumford's new ordinance violated multiple times while driving around town on 7/4 and 7/5.

lol!
