MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - The Mandan Park Board has finalized a ban on private fireworks at city parks following complaints about spooked horses from the Mandan Rodeo Committee.

The Bismarck Tribune (https://bit.ly/1QmZUeu ) reports that the ban was finalized Monday without protest by the board. A motion initially was passed by the board at an Aug. 10 meeting, but two readings were required before the ban could be enacted.

The Mandan Rodeo Committee asked the park board to consider the ban, particularly at Dacotah Centennial Park. Committee president Bruce Schirado says horses have been traumatized by people using fireworks.

Professional fireworks displays at the Mandan Rodeo and other events permitted by the city will be exempt from the ban.
