Changes are being considered to Omaha's fireworks ordinance in city code.

Residents would no longer be able to shoot off fireworks in June, instead, they'd be restricted to just July 2nd through the 4th. Fireworks on the New Year's Eve would also be restricted to just one day.

If the council passes the entire proposal, the number of vendors would be cut from 50 to 40, with their selling window down from 11 to seven days. 

The council is expected to vote on the changes on September 25th.
