We know that there is a tradition of fireworks on 4th of July or New Years Eve. We would like to remind all residents that as per the Florida State Statute and Osceola County Ordinance, no ariel fireworks are permitted within a residential area.Unfortunately, the shooting of fireworks into the air is against the law. The Osceola County Sheriff's Department has informed us that the sparklers or fireworks that remain on the ground are the only type permitted in the county. Those that go into the air are illegal. If you want to see aerial fireworks, it is suggested that you go to a local event or theme parks planned for that evening. This is for your safety and that of your property. You are also liable for any injuries or damage as a result.
This is also a violation of the Noise Ordinance, 94-14. Please remember enforcement of these rules is for the safety of all residents and their property. There will be zero tolerance of violators due to respect for your neighbors and the community.
