Supervisors approve the amending of the former fireworks ordinance


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Johnson County Board of Supervisors officially amended a longtime county fireworks ordinance during a meeting on Thursday.

Recent discussions by the supervisors outlined what qualifies as firework material, what age should be appropriate to purchase fireworks, and how and where they may be used. Individuals under 21 years are not able to possess fireworks under the new ordinance.

Under the ordinance, individuals wishing to possess standard consumer fireworks would be required to hold proof of homeowner’s insurance in an amount no less than $1 million. For a display of display fireworks — those used for city celebrations including the Fourth of July — the holder would need to have workers’ compensation insurance. An application must be also be submitted to the supervisors at least 14 days before anticipated possession, storage, and/or the firing of a firework display.
