Mariah Wheeler started this petition to City of Rapid city/ City of Box Elder

Every year Rapid City and Box Elder allow the discharge of fireworks for Fourth of July. I do recognize the holiday, however, Fourth of July is a 1 day holiday. Rapid City and Box Elder allow people to discharge fireworks for several days, and even weeks for the 1 day holiday. This is not fair to the people who do not want to put up with them for very long. I have had it (and so have my neighbors) with the firework laws and regulations. People surrounding us will light them off for weeks, and for way too many hours. The fireworks affect many people who want some peace and quiet, people who need to sleep, veterans with PTSD, dogs and other animals who do not do well with them, people who are on the autism spectrum, babies, toddlers, children, and many others. Rapid City and Box Elder need to limit the firework regulations to 1 day for 4th of July. It should only be from 10am-10pm. And the police officers need to be enforcing that, and patrolling around to make sure that people are following the rules. Even now, they say they are too busy, so everyone gets away with lighting them off constantly when not allowed, or when it's disturbing neighbors. People need to be considerate of others, and the city of rapid city and box elder need to be respectful and considerate when coming up with dates and times allowed for fireworks.
