  • Waynesville City Council voted unanimously on Thursday to extend the number of days fireworks will be allowed to be discharged in city limits.
    Before the ordinance passed, the City of Waynesville only allowed fireworks to be discharged on July 4.
    Waynesville Mayor Luge Hardman said a Fort Leonard Wood soldier originally proposed the idea because he usually spent July 4 on post and wanted extra days to set fireworks off.
    The new ordinance states that Fireworks will be allowed July 3, 4, 5, each year between 8 a.m. And 10 p.m. only at the following locations
    -on a privately owned property with the consent of the owner and occupant of the property
    -in Laughlin Park or in the portion of the Waynesville City Park not occupied by the Water Spray Pad Playground or other park facility structures
    The ordinance states that fireworks may be discharged by persons under the age of 14 only if a person over 21 is present and providing supervision.
    In the event of potentially hazardous conditions, such as high winds or drought, the Mayor may suspend the discharge of fireworks within the City of Waynesville.
    Any person convicted of violating a provision of this ordinance could face a $500 fine or three months imprisonment.
