A small but passionate crowd voiced their opinions on fireworks at a town hall meeting on Monday. Making good on a promise he made following the creation of fireworks code for the city in 2017, Newton Mayor Mike Hansen hosted the meeting to review the past year with legal fireworks and gain insight from community members on where Newton should go for the coming season. “I promised that we would go through a season and then revisit this with citizens,” Hansen said. “All of the council members are here and they are the ones that are responsible for any changes in the ordinance or keeping it as it is.”
