Use of Fireworks are Prohibited in North Liberty

Each year, fireworks start an average of 18,500 fires, causing deaths, injuries and millions in direct property damage. The loud explosions can be scary to pets, unsettling to veterans and disruptive to kids. This Independence Day, please remember that the use of consumer fireworks in North Liberty are prohibited.

While 2017 changes in state law allowed counties and cities to set their own rules for the use of consumer fireworks, the North Liberty City Council has declined to take steps to legalize their use. Consumer fireworks are prohibited. Novelty fireworks, including sparklers and similar items, remain legal to use.

Residents are encouraged to talk to neighbors using fireworks illegally. Reports can also be made to joint dispatch at (319) 356-6800. Those who use fireworks without permits can face hundred of dollars in fines.
