Loud situation: Village officials receive fireworks complaints

July 10, 2012

CRIDERSVILLE — A local village has been receiving complaints about a popular holiday tradition.

Fireworks have been set off in the village of Cridersville and the police chief and mayor said there is a state law by which residents need to abide.

“Anything that flies and goes ‘boom’ is illegal in the state of Ohio,” Cridersville Police Chief John Drake said during Monday’s regular council meeting. “It woke me up at 3:30 in the morning the other night, and I had three people call my house because of it.”

The storm that passed through Wapakoneta and the rest of the county June 29 wreaked plenty of havoc on the Auglaize County Fairgrounds, Auglaize County Fairgrounds Manager Fred Piehl told members of the Auglaize County Fairboard during a regular meeting Monday.

Piehl said 15 trees on the property were lost or damaged during the storm, with several buildings also sustaining damage.

“In general, if you drove around the grounds, it was a sight to see,” Piehl said.

Entry forms for the contest are running in the Wapakoneta Daily News, with a Saturday deadline for entries. The winners are to be determined by their answers to this question: “If you could ask Astronaut Greg Johnson one question, what would it be, and why?”
