Getting an early jump on your Independence Day celebration could prove costly if you live in North Judson. Town Marshal Doug Vessely reminds residents fireworks can only be legally discharged on June 29, 30 and July 1-3 from 5 p.m. until two hours after sunset; July 4 from 10 a.m. until midnight and July 5-9 from 5 p.m. until two hours after sunset.
Fireworks may also be discharged on New Years Eve within the town limits. Vessely says officers will issue citations to people who discharge fireworks on other dates and times, and fines may be imposed.
State law prohibits the use of consumer fireworks on any public street or in any public park. Fireworks may only be discharged on your property, the property of someone who has given you permission to discharge fireworks or at special discharge locations.
