Did you know its cool to set off fireworks on New Years Eve?

According to WQAD, fireworks are allowed to be sold by retailers December 10th to January 3rd. In Scott County, they can only be set off from 10pm on the 31st until 12:30am on New Years Day. Anyone caught shooting fireworks outside of the scheduled times could be fined as much as $625.

Law enforcement from both Davenport and Bettendorf are committed to being more vigilant when it comes to enforcing the ordinance.

In Bettendorf, even if an officer doesn't see the exact person setting off fireworks, the property owner can be charged as a disorderly house.

In Davenport, a similar type of action would be treated as aiding and abetting.
