We know it will be tempting to let off fireworks this holiday weekend. This message is to remind/inform that it is against Ohio Law to do so. Outside of it being against Ohio law, we asked that you avoid doing this out of respect to your neighbors and the pets that live in the community.
Letting off fireworks is also very dangerous to yourself, your property, your neighbors, and your neighbor’s property. Please avoid unnecessary accidents. It will ruin yours and possibly someone else’s weekend.
