Boone Council Approves Use of Fireworks

Posted on 20 June 2017 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—The Boone City Council has approved an amendment to the city’s ordinance that will permit the use of fireworks in the community, once the new ordinance is published.  As expected, the council did approve changes that will coincide with the new state law, permitting the sales and use of fire works.  Once again, a couple of residents did approach the council and sought the implementation of restrictions for Boone.  The council did not make any changes which will mean that fireworks may be used from June 1st to July 8th between 9:00 AM and 10:00 PM, except for the 4th of July and the Saturday and Sunday before and after the 4th of July when fireworks will be allowed between 9:00 AM and 11:00 PM.

The time from for New Year’s Eve will be from December 10th to January 3rd, again from 9:00 AM to 10:00 PM, except for New Year’s Eve which will be from 9:00 AM until 12:30 AM on New Year’s Day.  The time will be from 9:00 AM until 11:00 PM the Saturday and Sunday before and after New Year’s Eve.

The issue of sales was brought up at the end of the meeting but was not addressed because the city has been named in at least one lawsuit contesting their position that sales of fireworks are permitted in the city, but zoning prohibits the sale of fireworks from tents.
