SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - It’s illegal to discharge fireworks inside Sioux Falls city limits but many ignore the law.
Police Chief Doug Barthel says police responded to 325 firework calls last Fourth of July.
Barthel says a firework citation carries a $95 dollar fine. Barthel says he doesn't want firework calls to get to that point so officers generally give offenders a warning. He advises using common sense and respect your neighbor's peace and property.
Barthel asks that you clean up discharged fireworks that you use outside of Sioux Falls.
