Lawmen: Fireworks violations on rise

Local law enforcement agencies have seen an increase in reports of fireworks violations over the past few days.

A Cole County ordinance states that fireworks are allowed to be shot off throughout the day in unincorporated areas, but they must cease at 11 p.m. and can resume at 9 a.m.

Two times a year — on the Fourth of July holiday and then on New Year's Eve — there is no 11 p.m. enforcement. The time is pushed back until 1 a.m., and they can resume at 9 a.m.
