KSAL Staff - June 26, 2017 10:24 am

Fireworks will go on sale Tuesday. A lot of information will continue to be distributed to educate citizens on the rules, so it’s only appropriate to share the information so that we can answer questions of citizens if need be. Please feel free to distribute as needed.

Midnite is to late in the county. Ten or maybe 11pm should be the end.
