Lincoln residents will get to have and shoot more types of fireworks within city limits this year.

The Lincoln City Council voted 5-2 Monday afternoon to allow the same type of fireworks that are legal in the state of Nebraska to also be sold and shot within the Lincoln city limits.

The previous ordinance had banned any firework or fire cracker that makes a noise or a boom. Beginning this year, Lincoln's law will now be consistent with the state fireworks law.

Council members Jonathan Cook and Jon Camp voted against the change in the ordinance at Monday's City Council meeting. An amendment to allow fireworks to be sold and shot within the city limits for two more days, July 1 through July 4, was dropped by council member John Spatz. So fireworks will remain legal in Lincoln only July 3 and July 4.
