4TH OF JULY: Two weeks away from first one with North Highline fireworks ban
Two weeks from tonight, it’ll be the first Fourth of July in North Highline since the fireworks ban took effect in unincorporated King County. As county officials have said previously, the first year is educational – violators will get warnings rather than citations. So here’s what you need to know:
With this year being the first that fireworks aren’t permitted, King County is emphasizing community education about the new rules and is deferring issuing citations for a year. However, that doesn’t mean folks will be able to light fireworks without repercussion. As of June 14th, residents have been able to report violators to the King County Permitting Division:
-Online by visiting kingcounty.gov/reportfireworks (Users will have to sign up for our system)
King County will issue a warning to violators and include them in our records. If the behavior continues, these violators will likely be the first to eventually receive citations.
Local Services is finalizing the details of how violators will be cited beginning in 2023.
