With the Fourth of July holiday weekend here, keep in mind that the Village of Bayside Ordinance 42-81 prohibits selling, exposing, using, keeping or discharging fireworks locally. While some communities allow individuals to purchase fireworks for use elsewhere, local laws must be observed and are enforced. Police personnel will be monitoring the community for any persons violating the ordinance and may issue citations with fines up to $114.00 for each incident. Any illegal fireworks including bottle rockets, firecrackers and Roman candles will be confiscated. Unless a permit has been granted by approval of the Village Board and Chief of Police, any fireworks need to be limited to paper caps, toy pistols, sparklers or toy snakes.
