Commissioners’ Court adopted an order by the Fire Marshal’s Office on June 14, 2011 to restrict the use of certain fireworks such as "skyrockets with sticks" and "missiles with fins” in light of the extreme drought conditions in the County for the Fourth of July Weekend.

The order will also prohibit the sale or use of restricted fireworks in the unincorporated areas of Hidalgo County, and limit the sale of fireworks in the County to five days only, commencing on June 30 and ending on July 4, 2011.

In accordance with Local Government Code § 352.051(i), a violation of this order will result in a Class C misdemeanor, punishable by a fine not to exceed $500.00.
