MARYSVILLE – Marysville officials wish residents a safe and happy Independence Day holiday, but remind that if legal “safe and sane”-style fireworks are a part of your family and friends’ celebration, you must follow local laws.
In Marysville, discharging fireworks is only allowed from 9 a.m.-11 p.m. on Thursday, July 4.
Marysville police this summer are stepping up their enforcement efforts to defuse the fireworks problem before it gets out of hand. Police will cite people caught with illegal fireworks between now and the holiday weekend, as well as individuals who ignite any fireworks outside of July 4th and the permitted hours. Under state law, possession or discharge of illegal fireworks is a misdemeanor offense punishable by a fine of up to $1,000, up to a year in jail and a mandatory court appearance.
