Make St. Louis City, MO, a FIREWORKS-FREE zone - Enforce Ordinance 65824

This petition had 115 supporters


Every year the city of St. Louis, MO, is subject to weeks of fireworks, interspersed by celebratory gunfire. While it is commendable that certain events  are celebrated, employing fireworks and explosions result in an unsafe environment for pets, people with PTSD,  Veterans, and others with mental issues. Every celebration, there are a large number of burned-down homes and untold property damage. It creates a particularly stressful environment for all citizens and an even more stressful environment for animals.

We are respectfully asking Mayor Lyda Krewson, the St. Louis City Board of Aldermen and the SLPD to consider enforcing Ordinance 65824, making St. Louis City a fireworks-free zone. 

Ordinance 65824: "An ordinance prohibiting any person or entity from possessing, storing, selling, posting for sale, exposing, transferring to another, using, exploding, discharging, setting off, or burning fireworks of any kind or description within the limits of the City of St. Louis, containing a penalty provision and providing that public displays of fireworks my occur with the written approval"
