Late night fireworks a disturbance to some locals

Posted: Updated:
When the sun sets in many neighborhoods, the flashes and noise from fireworks also sets in.

But what are the time regulations? 

In Scotts Bluff, an ordinance states that citizens can only discharge fireworks from 8 in the morning until 10 at night.

In Gering, discharging is allowed until 10:30.

Gering Police Chief George Holthus says that there have been some disturbances, but not as many as previous years.

"Certainly we would ask that they comply with the ordinances that are in place," says Holthus. "Those are there for the community. They're enacted by the city fathers in an effort to make a happy medium for everyone. And so we would ask that they comply with those ordinances and certainly anytime they're around fireworks, enjoy that in a safe manner."

In both Scotts bluff and Gering, Fourth of July is the last day that fireworks can be legally shot off.
