ef9c0e67-feeb-4cf9-8b8c-8e46dee7e822Fairway reminds residents that fireworks are not legal inside the city. Fairway Police Chief Mike Fleming issued this reminder to residents and visitors this morning:

I hope you all have a safe and enjoyable July 4th Holiday! Please keep in mind that fireworks are prohibited in Fairway with the exception of approved public displays. The weather has not been as dry as in previous years; however that does not help to ease any concerns the Police and Fire Departments have with preventing accidents and fires over the next few days. I have copied the ordinance that prohibits fireworks below and ask that everybody help to keep the holiday as safe as possible. Thank you

Sec. 5-58. – FIREWORKS PROHIBITED: EXCEPTIONS.
No person shall store, offer for sale, expose for sale, sell at retail, use, explode or discharge any fireworks except for supervised public exhibitions or displays; provided, however, that such public exhibitions or displays shall be conducted only in accordance with any rules and regulations issued by the Fire Official; provided, further, however, that the provisions and prohibitions of this section shall not be construed to prohibit the proper and lawful storage of fireworks, by an actual wholesaler, for sale outside the City limits
