MENIFEE COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – It’s a unique dilemma for law enforcement agencies.
And the Menifee County Sheriff’s Department is letting people know right now what its policy is going to be.
With the coronavirus shutdown canceling many traditional July 4 fireworks displays sponsored by cities and towns, many law enforcement agencies anticipate more use of fireworks by individuals.
That means more noise.
“Due to there NOT being a Loud Noise Ordinance in Menifee County, the 911 Center and Menifee County Sheriffs Office will not be taking any calls for fireworks. By Law there is nothing we can do about noise. We understand that due to Corona Virus that Frenchburg and Big Woods will not be having any type of fireworks shows. This means that many people will be setting off fireworks at their homes. Please have a safe and happy 4th of July!!” the sheriff’s department posted on its Facebook page Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the department is looking for the owner of the recovered DeWalt drill pictured below. It has initials G.W.F. and name Fultz inscribed on it. Call Menifee County Sheriff’s Office at 606-768-3875.
