TNT Fireworks based in Florence is making some national news. The fireworks company has sued the city of DesMoines, Iowa, claiming it’s in violation of a new state law allowing fireworks sales around Independence Day and Christmas/New Year’s. DesMoines is continuing to limit these sales to industrial areas only.
A federal judge has blocked TNT’s attempt for a temporary injunction against the city. It’s unlikely the case will be settled before the July fireworks season is over. The judge commented that the company faces only minor financial harm if not allowed to sell in other areas of DesMoines.
