Fireworks should not be lit:

  • In any gathering of people.
  • In public parks, including golf courses, and public parking lots of the city.
  • Within any building.
  • In, under, or from a car or vehicle whether moving or standing still.

For safety purposes — and to keep our community looking tidy — all unfired fireworks and debris should be immediately cleaned up, removed from any adjacent right-of-way, and disposed of in a nonflammable container. 

Fireworks with projectiles that shoot into the air should be directed so that the projectile does not fire over any building or person. At least one approved fire extinguisher is required at the exhibition site.

You may not light fireworks while under the influence of alcohol or other substances that may impair judgment. 

The use of fireworks is prohibited in the event of a burn ban or declaration of an emergency. The sale of fireworks is still allowed during a burn ban.

Violations of the ordinance pertaining to the lighting of fireworks (Chapter VI, Articles 1 and 2) are a Class C offense and carry penalties up to $500 plus any cost for fighting fires or responding to other emergencies resulting from the violation. In addition, each day the violation continues is a separate offense.
