SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - Don’t say you haven’t been warned.  The Sheboygan Police Department recently announced they will be strictly enforcing the city’s fireworks ordinance.  Lt. Bill Adams says fireworks create a risk of fire and of injuries to others - so, in order to make sure everyone has a safe and peaceful summer, police will be strictly enforcing the city's fireworks ordinance.  Adams says fireworks means anything manufactured or packaged for exploding, emitting sparks or combustion which does not have another common use.  He also says people have to remember that just because they have purchased fireworks elsewhere in the state where they may be legal, you still can't own them or discharge them in the city of Sheboygan.  Adams said it's more than a safety issue.  He said people set off firecrackers or fireworks at all hours of the night and police get numerous complaints related to the noise.  If you get busted, it will cost $250 per violation, and parents and guardians are also liable for minors who get caught..
