The Winchester City Council passed two ordinances on June 14th related to fireworks sales and usage.
Under the first ordinance, fire works sales in the city are now allowed from June 27th to July 5th, which matches statewide regulations set by the Kansas State Fire Marshal. In order to sell fireworks within the city, a permit must be acquired from the city office.
Under the second ordinance, legal fireworks are permitted to be set off in the city from 8am to 12am (midnight) every day from June 27th to July 5th.
