According to a release from the City of Muskego, Mayor Kathy Chiaverotti, upon recommendation of the Fire Chief and upon notice from the DNR has declared a burning ban throughout the city.
"I, by this proclamation, declare an emergency and forbid the setting of fires within the City or any part thereof and/or will have this notice broadcast on radio or TV. After broadcasting this notice, no person shall set any fire upon land in such area except for warming a person or cooking food or the Muskego Water Bugs fireworks show on Little Muskego Lake until the expiration of such emergency," the release stated.
This will mean the July 3rd show will go on, and residents can cook food on a grill, but that's about it.
If a decision is made to lift the ban, similar notice will be given.
Saturday the Common Council is scheduled to meet to discuss a fireworks ban, which would render all use of class C fireworks illegal, whether a permit was granted or not. More information on whether refunds would be issued should that be the case will be available after the meeting.
