Fireworks Season is Over for Now

It’s time to put those fireworks away… until New Year’s eve.

The city of Knox has an ordinance that indicates residents are able to discharge fireworks within city limits between the hours of 5 p.m. and two hours after sunset from June 29 through July 9. You may use, discharge or ignite consumer fireworks again between the hours of 10 a.m. on Dec. 31, 2013 and 1 a.m. on Jan. 1, 2014.

Other communities in the area have the same policy.

If you violate the policy, you will be fined $100 for the first offense, $250 for the second offense, and $500 for a third offense and every offense thereafter.
