Fireworks stands have been selling in Kirksville for weeks, but the local restrictions banned their use until this week. Discharging fireworks is allowed from June 30 to July 5th. They can be shot off not earlier than 9 in the morning and no later than 11 at night. But the police will still respond to noise complaints. Better be on good terms with your neighbors because you can still be ticketed for disturbing the peace. Rules say you can’t toss fireworks out of cars or under cars or at people. And once the 4th is over, you have one more day to shoot off leftover fireworks till 11 pm Friday.
