Sheriff urges fireworks safety


Fireworks season is here as people celebrate the 4th of July, but exploding devices are not allowed everywhere.
According to city laws, fireworks are not allowed to be used in the City of Lebanon with the exception of properly permitted supervised displays. Lebanon ordinances state that the ban applies to all persons and organizations within the city and includes any firecracker, rocket, torpedo, squib, cap, cartridge, candle, sparkler, dynamite or any combustible fireworks, firecrackers or explosive devices of any kind.
There are no laws on fireworks in unincorporated Laclede County, according to Sheriff David Millsap, but he said that state laws on peace disturbances could apply.
