The Village of Merrillan wants everyone to have a safe and Happy 4th of July. With that in mind there needs to be a reminder sent out regarding fireworks. The keyword here is safe. As some of us may already know, just tonight at the Sparta FIreworks event a firework tipped over and discharged into the crowd, causing injuries to an unknown extent. This was at a controlled and permitted event. It can happen anywhere, at any time, and to anyone.
Merrillan has an ordinance, Title 7, Chapter 6, Section 1 (7-6-1), outlining the requirements to set off fireworks within the Village, including what is allowed without a permit. A permit is required for the large fireworks that have been going off within the Village over the holiday, along with insurance for this specific purpose. A good rule of thumb is if it goes up, or blows up, it’s against the law.
Thank you to those who were respectful when requested to stop setting off the fireworks.
If you have any questions, please let us know.
The Village was recently recognized for accessibility during elections. Special shoutout to our Deputy Clerk, Chrystal Fitzmaurice, who worked the most recent election. Thank you to her and our Clerk Penny Danielson for all you do in keeping things running smooth!
The village has a new product. Can Koozies for $5. We have 11 on hand, but you can always preorder! Stop in and check them out. All proceeds go to the Park Fund to help with new bathrooms/shower house.
Once again we are faced with vandalism within the Village. Attached you will find pictures of vandalism at Gile Park, which occurred around June 3rd, and at the Lower Lake beach around June 15th.
Most people are aware of this, but some clearly need a reminder. This costs the Village money, resources, and time to fix or clean up. If you are one who did this or participated, you should know there can be serious consequences, whether from these incidents or your future actions of you so choose to behave in such a manner.
If anyone has any information on these or other incidents, please reach out.
