 This is a copy of the official Mequon ordinance on fireworks, which was sent to the PPHOA secretary via email.  Please refrain from using them this summer!  We have had numerous complaints, and the homeowners will call the police.

Hi Ms Bazan,
I've copy and pasted the city ordinances on fireworks below (taken directly from the City of Mequon website, under "ordinances.")
The cliffnotes version, to save you time, is highlighted below.  Pretty much no fireworks allowed, except for the things highlighted below (sparklers, caps, snakes, confetti, etc - small type things).  In some cases permits are issued for people to use bigger fireworks, but those are few and far between.  The fireworks you hear in general are likely illegal.  Feel free to call the PD if you hear some in the area and we can check into things further. 
Hope this helps.
