Private use of fireworks, open burning banned in Brighton

Brighton City Council passed an emergency ordinance at last night’s council meeting implementing Gov. John Hickenlooper’s June 14 executive order banning open burning and private use of fireworks throughout Colorado because of very dry conditions and high fire danger. The ordinance remains in effect until the Governor’s order is rescinded.

 

 

 The ordinance temporarily prohibits residents from discharging any fireworks within the city of Brighton and bans open burns anywhere in the city except for fires in constructed, permanent fire pits or grates within developed camp and picnic grounds or recreation sites or parks.

 

 

 

While the private use of fireworks will be banned, Council passed a resolution to continue to allow temporary firework stands within the city.

 

 

 

Pursuant to the Governor’s executive order, commercial, professional and municipal fireworks displays are allowed upon written approval by the county sheriff.

 


For questions regarding the ban, please contact Public Information Manager Kristen Chernosky at 303-655-2061. To report any firework use or open burning, contact the Brighton Police Department at 303-655-2300.
