City of Paris Reminds Residents of Fireworks Ban Ahead of Independence Day

The City of Paris has issued a reminder to residents regarding the prohibition of fireworks within city limits, ahead of the upcoming Independence Day celebrations. According to the City’s Code of Ordinances, it is illegal to possess, manufacture, store, sell, or use fireworks on private property, streets, driveways, parking lots, or in any city park, including Lake Crook.

City officials emphasize a zero-tolerance approach to enforcing this ban, with penalties outlined in the City of Paris Code of Ordinances 6.04.001 and Fire Code 5601.1.3. Violators may face fines up to $2000.00, along with confiscation and/or destruction of any fireworks found.

The ordinance aims to ensure the safety and well-being of residents, allowing them to celebrate safely while protecting against potential risks such as fires, injuries, and disturbance to pets. Additionally, fireworks are prohibited in Texas State Parks and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers lands and waterways.

Residents are encouraged to verify the legality of fireworks use before planning any celebrations to avoid legal consequences.
