KPD Issues Fireworks Remiders

As the 4th of July approaches, the Kirksville Police Department is issuing some reminders: The discharging of fireworks inside the city limits will be legal starting tomorrow and continuing through July 5th. Individuals may only discharge fireworks between the hours of 9 a.m. and 11 p.m. on their own property. However, if a complaint is received and verified by the Police Department for disturbance of the peace of surrounding neighbors a citation may be issued. In addition, it is unlawful for any person to throw fireworks out of vehicles, under vehicles, at people or on any public street or public place within the city. The fireworks ordinance is available online. See KPD’s facebook page for the link.
