The City of Bryant reminds locals that it’s okay to celebrate Independence Day and shoot those fireworks, but ONLY on certain days, times and places. The Bryant City ordinance is shown in full below so that you’ll be able to have fun and stay out of trouble and not get a ticket or a hefty fine.
First let’s talk about when you can discharge fireworks. You may legally shoot fireworks in the Bryant City Limits from Noon to 10 p.m. on Monday, July 3rd, Tuesday, July 4th, and Wednesday, July 5th, 2023.
There are also regulations on where not to shoot them and you can be fined for violations. In short, don’t shoot them near things that can blow up – like cars and gas; not near people that are particularly sensitive – like nursing homes and hospitals; not near a park without a city permit; and there is more. Here are some highlights:
Per Ordinance No. 2006–38, No Fireworks may be discharged…
…within the boundaries of or within three hundred (300) feet of any public park owned or maintained by the City UNLESS you have a public display permit except as otherwise provided in chapter 2C of the ordinance.
…upon any public street, alley, road, or right-of-way, except as otherwise provided in this chapter.
…within 1000 feet of any hospital, nursing, or assisted living facility.
…under or upon a motor vehicle, whether moving or not.
…within 300 feet of any gas station; gas, oil, or propane storage facility; or other area which is highly flammable by nature.
READ ALL OF THE CITY ORDINANCE BELOW to keep yourself from getting a ticket or fined. Ignorance won’t get you out of trouble.
Police officers, firefighters and code enforcement personnel have the authority to take your fireworks and fine you in the hundreds of dollars. Please have fun and celebrate, but obey all the rules to stay safe!
