Fireworks Ordinance

The Village of Merrillan wants everyone to have a safe and Happy 4th of July. With that in mind there needs to be a reminder sent out regarding fireworks. The keyword here is safe. As some of us may already know, just tonight at the Sparta FIreworks event a firework tipped over and discharged into the crowd, causing injuries to an unknown extent. This was at a controlled and permitted event. It can happen anywhere, at any time, and to anyone.

Merrillan has an ordinance, Title 7, Chapter 6, Section 1 (7-6-1), outlining the requirements to set off fireworks within the Village, including what is allowed without a permit. A permit is required for the large fireworks that have been going off within the Village over the holiday, along with insurance for this specific purpose. A good rule of thumb is if it goes up, or blows up, it’s against the law.

Thank you to those who were respectful when requested to stop setting off the fireworks.

If you have any questions, please let us know.

Beach and Park Vandalism

If you are one who did this or participated, you should know there can be serious consequences, whether from these incidents or your future actions of you so choose to behave in such a manner.

If anyone has any information on these or other incidents, please reach out.
