County could restrict use of fireworks

Aug 5, 2013

Tippecanoe County commissioners this morning will review rules for setting off fireworks.

Currently, it’s legal to use the devices any day of the year outside the Lafayette and West Lafayette city limits.

But officials are expected to consider an ordinance that would limit the use to match the state’s guidelines — June 29th through July 9th, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.

Commissioners say the move is in response to complaints by constituents.
