Consumer Fireworks may
be fired or discharged on private property and in public places (public places
means areas owned and/or operated by the city that are designated for such
purposes by the governing body of the city) between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and
10:30 p.m. on June 27 through July 5.
Emergency Communications will staff a non-emergency number for fireworks and nuisance complaints during the 4th of July weekend.
This line should be used to report fireworks complaints when no one is injured and nothing is on fire. Loud parties and noise complaints should also be reported on this line, when activated, as long as there is no disturbance or other illegal activity involved. Calls made on the 9-1-1 lines reporting these types of events will be transferred over to the non-emergency line during their hours of operation.
Citizens should call the non-emergency line directly,
316-290-1011, as to keep the 9-1-1 lines clear for life threatening emergencies.
The non-emergency line will be staffed during the following times:
The City of Maize's Splash Pad at Maize City Park at 401
Khedive is open daily from 9am-9pm. Enjoy the summer
and stay cool!
From the City Administrator - March, 2016:
With the support of the City Council and a positive
attitude of employees, a cohesive team is in place to serve
our community. There are always challenges and obstacles to
confront, however, the Maize employee team believes in
changing such encounters into opportunities and positive
conduits to get the job done.
Thank you for being a part of the Maize family!
