“Milton residents have been clear in their desire for our city to retain its rural look and feel and with that desire comes a responsibility to consider the needs of our area farm owners,” Lockwood wrote in a statement to city residents on Monday.
The Georgia General Assembly made revisions to fireworks legislation in 2016, but Lockwood would like additional changes to the law that consider how close to horses and livestock fireworks can be when they are set off, and what hours fireworks can be used.
Lockwood, who is seeking reelection to a fourth term, has been Milton’s mayor since it was founded in 2006. He asks anyone with comments, questions or suggestions to email email@example.com.
