HOLLAND, MI (WHTC) - The 4th of July is only two days away and the Holland Department of Public Safety is already busy. They were called out 30 times over this past weekend to deal with fireworks being used illegally in the city of Holland. Last week, the Holland City Council passed an ordinance limiting the use of fireworks to coincide with state laws. That means fireworks are only allowed on ten national holidays and the day before and after each of those holidays. Fireworks this week are limited to July 3rd, 4th and 5th and not to be used at all between the hours of 1 a.m. and 8 a.m. Holland Charter Township has adopted similar rules.
