Fireworks at Elgin fireworks workshop
Placeholder Image
A question of whether an Elgin fireworks stand violates a zoning ordinance led to a heated discussion of the town’s fireworks and zoning ordinances during an Aug. 11 Elgin Town Council workshop. Elgin Councilwoman Dana Sloan recused herself from any discussion on the ordinances because the business in question -- Blaney Fireworks -- is owned by her husband, Jason Sloan, whose lawyer, Matthew Rosbrugh, was present at the workshop. Blaney Fireworks has been in business for 16 years.
