Farmington Hills Police Department Reminds Residents About Fireworks Ordinance

(CBS DETROIT) - Farmington Hills Police are reminding residents about the city's fireworks ordinance.

Starting June 29, the city says fireworks may be discharged from 11 a.m. to 11:45 p.m. every day through the night of Sunday, July 4.

"It is illegal to use fireworks while under the influence of alcohol or drugs and fireworks cannot be fired off from parks, roadways, or other public property. Written permission must be obtained to fire off fireworks from private property. Additionally, it is unlawful to discharge fireworks if a firework ban has been implemented by the Fire Chief due to dry conditions," the city stated in a press release.

An individual that violates the ordinance may be issued a municipal civil infraction, which is punishable by a civil fine of $1,000 for each violation, according to the city of Farmington Hills.

The police department is also asking residents who wish to celebrate with fireworks to do so in a safe and legal manner that is respectful of others.
