Mandan Gives Narrow Thumbs Up to New Year's Eve Fireworks -- "We Can Always Rescind it"

Posted: Updated:

There are fireworks in Mandan -- at least there will be.

The City Commission votes to update its fire code to international standards, and in the process, allows fireworks on New Year's Eve -- for the first time ever.

Not everyone is happy about it, citing safety concerns, including storing summer fireworks, and noise.  A Commissioner who was initially against the idea took another look and ended up changing his mind.

"My thinking was if it does become a problem, if we get a lot of complaints and it doesn't seem like it's something that's going to be popular with the citizenry or cause problems, we can always rescind it too," says Dennis Rohr, Mandan City Commissioner.

New Year's Even fireworks in Mandan will be allowed from 5:00 p.m. on December 31st to 1:00 a.m. on January 1st.
