“If we find people using them we will take them away and issue a citation,” said Fire Marshal David Barnes. “DPS will have a no tolerance policy towards these violators.”
Fines for selling or using fireworks within the Southlake City limits can be as high as $2,000.
“It’s not worth the risk,” added Barnes. “Instead come and enjoy the City’s Stars and Stripes celebration on Thursday, July 3rd, it’s going to be a great event.”
Fire Chief Michael Starr says, “The best way to have fun and play it safe it to leave the fireworks to the professionals. We want to provide a safe environment for kids and their families to enjoy the holiday.”
