Thank you city of Glendora for taking this matter seriously. If only our neighbor city would take on the same law.

I wish Glendora would allow safe and sane fireworks. I grew up here in Glendora my whole life, and so much has changed. 4th of July is about celebrating our freedom, and enjoying fireworks with my kids. What is the difference if the fireworks are legal across barranca we should all enjoy together.

i think it is a great law, however, very difficult to enforce unless it is done in front of an officer. I had fireworks going off like crazy last night next door, call the Glendora Police and it took over 30 minutes for a response. By that time fireworks done, people gone and house was dark.
