The Clark County Council will consider an update to the county’s fireworks rules during a public hearing at 10 am Tuesday, Dec. 1.
The council will consider possibly restricting sales and use of fireworks to “safe and sane” fireworks. If approved, the update to the code will prohibit fireworks that fly, explode or travel more than 1 foot into the air or more than 6 feet on the ground.
Any changes the council makes to the code at this hearing would apply to the unincorporated areas in Clark County and would go into effect on Dec. 1, 2021.
