At Monday night's joint council meeting of the Cape Girardeau City Council and the Jackson Board of Aldermen, the aldermen agreed to ban bottle rockets in Jackson. Cape Girardeau already had a ban on bottle rockets, which went into effect on Dec. 31, 2000. The Cape Girardeau council has expanded its ban to any type of fireworks using a stick of wood or plastic to aid in launching. Jackson accepted Cape Girardeau's proposed definition.
