But lighting personal fireworks is also against city ordinances for those who live within city limits and in areas within 5,000 feet of city limits.
The city ordinance defines fireworks as any firecrackers, cannon crackers, skyrockets, torpedoes, Roman candles, sparklers, squibs, fire balloons, star shells, gerbs, or any other substance in whatever combination by any designated name intended for use in obtaining visible or audible pyrotechnic display and includes all articles or substances within the commonly accepted meaning of fireworks, it said.
Use of fireworks could result in fines of up to $2,000, according to the city’s website.
