Law prohibits Shelby Township from regulating fireworks 11 AM-11:45 PM, June 29-July 5

The state of Michigan sets regulations governing the use of consumer-grade fireworks through laws passed by the state legislature. In Shelby Township, the Board of Trustees has adopted the most stringent allowances on consumer-grade fireworks permissible under state law.

Because of recent changes to the state law, there are new hours for fireworks use this year surrounding the Independence Day holiday. The new law prohibits Shelby Township from regulating the use of consumer-grade fireworks from 11 a.m. to 11:45 p.m. between June 29 and July 5.

Following Independence Day, the only remaining allowable windows for the use of consumer-grade fireworks in the township are between 11 a.m. and 11:45 p.m. Aug. 31 and Sept. 1 and between 11 a.m. Dec. 31 and 1 a.m. Jan. 1, 2020.

All other uses of consumer-grade fireworks within Shelby Township are prohibited. Report illicit use to the Shelby Township Police Department at 586-731-2121. Report concerns regarding the sale of consumer-grade fireworks, 24/7, to the state’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs at 517-388-6715.

Consumers Energy announces pipeline project timeline

Consumers Energy has informed Shelby Township that it will begin tree clearing within the ITC Holdings Corp. corridor that runs north to south west of Schoenherr Road throughout the township. Tree clearing will begin this month prior to construction of a new pipeline within the corridor in May 2019.


Consumers Energy said tree clearing is being done early because of environmental regulations and ground conditions. Crews will be working at different locations on different days along the 7.5-mile corridor for three to four weeks. Specific day-by-day schedules were not available, but crews have already started tree clearing in Sterling Heights.


Crews should not be in any one location for very long, so the impact to specific landowners should be limited to one or two days. Crews will begin work between 7:30 a.m. and 8 a.m., Monday through Friday, and will work until 6 p.m.


For question and comments regarding the project, contact Consumers Energy at 800-731-2257 or email Visit for more information.
