TYBEE ISLAND, GA- Fireworks are ideal for holidays or celebrations. Now with Georgia’s new state law peeling back regulations on commercial scale boom sticks, city leaders on Tybee are voicing concerns.
Neighbors say they hear fireworks off and on several nights a week into the late hours.
City leaders acted this week, passing a resolution to state lawmakers to change the law not only as a means of taming the noise, but also giving back local control.
“It’s really being disruptive to the neighborhoods especially during the summer we have people shooting stuff off until midnight pretty much every day of the week it’s just a pain all we’re asking the legislature to do is let us regulate ourselves so that we can keep piece in our neighborhood,” says Tybee councilman Paul Wolff.
Council members are working to get local state lawmakers on board with the request for when they head back to the gold dome in January.
