Town of New Glarus Board Adopts a Fireworks Ordinance and Application Fee

At the May 11, 2022 regular Town Board meeting, the fee schedule that has not been updated since 2010 was revised.  A new charge of $25 to accompany the existing fireworks permit application was approved.  At the June 8, 2022 meeting the Town Board adopted a Fireworks Ordinance that includes rules beyond those contained within Wisconsin Statute 167.10 and codified the information requested in the existing permit application.  In addition to the existing requirement for the applicant to notify the Green County Sheriff’s Office and the New Glarus Fire Department at least two days prior to an approved event, applicants must also notify any neighbor with livestock within 1000′ of the display location.
