Area Communities Banning Fireworks
KSAL Staff - Sat 09:05 AM 06/30/2012
The hot, dry, conditions are prompting numerous area communities to ban fireworks.
Joining the list Friday were Lincoln, Russell, and Hays. They join over a dozen other area communities that have deemed the discharge of fireworks to be too dangerous because of the dry conditions.
In Salina, and Saline County, the sale and discharge of fireworks have not been banned.
In Saline County, fireworks are currently on sale, and can be discharged, through July 5th. They can only be discharged on private property, with the property-owners permission, between the hours of 8 AM and midnight.
In the city of Salina, fireworks are on sale through July 4th. They can only be discharged in the city on July 3rd and July 4th between 8 AM and 11 PM. Fireworks may be discharged on personal property only.
Local law enforcement is going to be vigorously enforcing fireworks violations, and will have a zero-tolerance policy.
