One of our favorite holidays of the year is finally almost here! Your friends here at Bob Richards and Associates want to wish you a safe and wonderful Fourth of July with your family, friends, neighbors, and community! So start googling how to cut the perfect watermelon, dust off that grill you got for Father's Day six years ago, and dig out that Old Navy 4th of July T-shirt, because it's T minus 24 hours until the festivities begin!
First.... a Utah Code reminder for your safety and awareness
(and so your neighbor's don't deem your house as the designated "toilet papered target" for the rest of the summer)
Utah law prohibits the use of fireworks with the exception of the days surrounding Independence Day and Pioneer Day. Fireworks are allowed to be sold and used on each holiday, as well as two days prior and one day after each holiday: July 2, 3, 4 and 5, and July 22, 23, 24 and 25. Class C explosives are allowed to be sold and purchased in Utah between June 24 and July 25.
In all Utah cities, fireworks are allowed to be discharged between 11 a.m. and 11 p.m. on July 2, 3, 5, 22, 23 and 25, and from 11 a.m. to midnight on July 4 and 24.
Municipalities may add additional restrictions, banning the use of fireworks in certain areas within city limits. Those who use fireworks in restricted areas can be charged with a maximum sentence of a class B misdemeanor, six months in jail and a $1,000 fine, according to the Utah State Legislature.
