Re: water/fireworks NOW Town Ordinances

I wouldn't get anywhere complaining about fireworks to the city here, but
generally my cats deal with it, some of them under the bed, some attempting
to hang tough. (though, since Slugger is new, I'm not sure about him)
Several years back I did have some trouble.  I simply put up with a range of
2 weeks of this nonsense (not a solid 2 wks, just here and there.  Some
start early, can't seem to wait until the 4th, while others continue on
after the holiday with leftovers or just buy more.)  But that one year, a
guy a couple houses down was still at it with M80s in the middle of the day
around 7/20.  As a Neighborhood Association officer at the time, I felt I
could go over and ask him to stop.  Unfortunately, the guy was drunk and
nasty and actually tried to pick a fight with me.  I went home and called
the police AND the realtor who was managing his rental property.  He was out
of there by fall.
