Fewer Legal Days to Shoot Off Fireworks in Park Hills

(Park Hills) The Park Hills City Council has amended it’s fireworks ordinance.

The change was made during Tuesday night’s city council meeting after City Hall received several complaints during fireworks season last year.

City Administrator Mark McFarland says there’s going to be fewer days to use fireworks in Park Hills starting this year.

McFarland says the Park Hills City Council also received a report at their meeting from library director Lisa Sisk.

In other news from this week’s Park Hills City Council meeting, a proposition was officially placed on the April 5th election ballot.

It’s a 3.5 million dollar bond issue proposal that would be used to construct and replace the old city swimming pool at Columbia Park that finally broke down for good last summer.

McFarland says the City gave the go ahead for him to pursue some coronavirus funding from the federal government.

Also, Cody Govreau was hired as the new director for the Park Hills Public Works Department.

He replaces Pete Dublois who retired in December.
