The legal sale of fireworks in Iowa began June 1 and will end July 8. As a courtesy to residents, the city issued the following statement Friday in regard to the use of fireworks within the city limits:
It is illegal for any person to use or explode any explosive material or consumer fireworks within Perry city limits.
The City of Perry deems the use of consumer fireworks as a threat to public safety or a nuisance to landowners and therefore prohibits the use of consumer fireworks within Perry city limits, except for commercial displays by a licensed operator that have received a permit from the City of Perry.
The penalty for violation of this ordinance is a simple misdemeanor punishable by a fine of not less than two hundred and fifty dollars ($250). A municipal infraction of $250 may be issued in lieu of the simple misdemeanor violation.
For more information, call the Perry City Hall at 515-465-2481.
