You Can Own, Not Shoot Fireworks in Charles City

The Charles City Police Department is reminding residents of the city’s fireworks ordinance.

Captain Brandon Franke says officers will give a warning for the first offense, before issuing a citation to appear in court for repeat violations. Still, he expects officers to be busy with fireworks calls this weekend.

While the ban on shooting off fireworks in Charles City applies to the larger fireworks, Franke reminds parents even smaller items like sparklers can be dangerous and kids should not handle them unsupervised.
