In its first use since Muskego revised its fireworks ordinance last year, the Finance Committee reviewed the applications of three residents who want a city permit to have fireworks displays this Fourth of July, but who had a problem last year.
A complaint had been lodged against two of them and the third got a ticket for not having a permit.
The Finance Committee reviewed the three permit applications, which is one of the new provisions in the ordinance. City officials put in a Finance Committee review as an extra layer of supervision for those whose fireworks displays attract a complaint or even a ticket.
The committee ended up approving all three permits.
Mayor Kathy Chiaverotti said the new system seems to be working as intended - to help neighbors find common ground.
"I think it's helpful to have that conversation," she said.
Muskego is the only community in the metropolitan area that allows private citizens to have a fireworks display, providing they have permits.
