After Smoke Clears, Metro Residents Recap Firework Noise
URBANDALE, Iowa -- Fifth grader Charlie Barwick of Urbandale has some strong opinions when it comes to fireworks. “Shoot them off when everyone is awake! 2:30 a.m., I was trying to sleep, and fireworks went off. Very loud, keeping me up, keeping my cousin up!” he said. To Charlie’s disappointment Urbandale’s code outlawing the use of fireworks entirely didn't stop people from shooting them off, but it didn't come without a cost.
