BOX ELDER COUNTY – By Cari Doutre – June 28, 2021
This year’s 4th of July celebrations throughout Box Elder County and Utah will be much tamer than in recent years as municipalities across the state are now banning the use of fireworks due to extreme drought conditions and wildfire season.
On June 15, 2021, the Tremonton City Council passed an ordinance making it a Class C misdemeanor to “to sell or offer for retail sale, or to discharge, or to have in their possession any fireworks” within restricted areas in Tremonton City.
The following restricted areas within Tremonton City limits are:
· All land north of the Highland Canal
· All land west of 2300 West and east of Interstate 84
· All land within 100 feet of the Sensitive Area Zoning District generally known as the Malad River Bottoms
See the map below for those restricted areas in Tremonton and Ordinance No. 21-08 in full below.
Fireworks considered legal by city code are allowed in non-restricted areas within Tremonton City limits on designated dates only. It is illegal to discharge fireworks within 20 feet of any residence, dwelling or structure in Tremonton City limits. Firework Restrictions – Tremonton City
Tremonton City isn’t the only city in Box Elder County to restrict the use of fireworks. Brigham City and Perry City have also prohibited fireworks for restricted areas within their city limits. Find more information as released by those cities below.
