I am getting sick and tired of our neighbors shooting off fireworks around the July 3 and July 4 holiday. I walked outside our house to find fireworks debris by our bush by our addition, in the front yard and on our air conditioner. 

I am getting sick and tired of playing the run-and-hide game from these jerks. I want to know how many neighbors are actually sick and tired of this. It is the same thing every year. It has got to stop. 

If Illinois can ban fireworks then why can’t Brookfield, Riverside and North Riverside? I took a bag of it to the police station and they said, “Unless you see them shooting it off we cannot do anything about it.” 

If you are sick and tired of it like me, please come with me to the village board meeting and let them know.
