Havre PD Reminds Residents of Fireworks Ordinances

HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) – As the 4th of July is quickly approaching, the Havre Police Department wants to remind the public of the City Ordinances regarding fireworks. A press release says that the discharging of fireworks within the incorporated limits of the City of Havre is allowed from July 2nd through July 4th from 8 AM to midnight.

Permissible fireworks include and are limited to those that meet the definition of “common fireworks” as set forth in the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Hazardous Materials Regulations. This does not include skyrockets, roman candles, and bottle rockets.

All fireworks are banned from all City parks and they may not be discharged on any public sidewalk, street, public right-of-way, public easement or alley. It is also illegal to leave debris from discharged fireworks on any public place.

Any person who violates these rules and regulations shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and subject to fines of up to $300 for the third offence.
