The City of Brooklyn would like to remind our residents that it is illegal in the city to possess for sale, discharge, ignite or explode any firework inside the city (Brooklyn Codified Ordinances Chapter 1519-Fireworks). If you have purchased fireworks you must have completed a purchaser's form agreeing to transport the fireworks out of the state of Ohio within 48 hours of the date of purchase. The safety forces will respond to any and all complaints regarding the discharging of fireworks. Any violation of the fireworks provision could result in a fine of up to $1000.00 or 6 months in jail or both. Please enjoy a safe Fourth of July.
