HURRICANE, Utah (ABC4) – Hurricane City bans fireworks due to extremely dangerous fire conditions, but a free professional show will be held and local guides will encourage people to go.
The Hurricane City Council convened a special session Wednesday at which Mayor John Bramall announced an urgent resolution banning fireworks on all private and public properties within the city limits.
However, on July 3, a city-sponsored professional exhibit will be held at Sand Hollow State Park with free entry after 6:00 p.m.
â€œWe don’t want to increase this risk of fire, we want people to come safely to see the fireworks, we don’t allow personal fireworks in Sand Hollow, local communities don’t allow personal fireworks so we encourage people to come to see professionals watch them sit down, â€says Jonathan Hunt, the manager of Sand Hollow State Park.
According to the Hurricane Police Chief, they will enforce the emergency solution and violations will be punished as Class B offenses with a fine of up to $ 1,000 for each individual violation, even a possible prison sentence of up to six months.
