Brewer Fireworks Restrictions Enacted 

On Monday, the Brewer City Council enacted a new ordinance, banning the use of fireworks in most parts of the city.In November, voters passed a referendum, amending the land use code, restricting the use of fireworks to areas that also permit the discharge of firearms.That means residents can only use fireworks in outlying areas of the city.Mayor Kevin O’Connell attributed the referendum’s support to the number of noise complaints associated with fireworks.
