Council to consider legalizing fireworks

Members of the Biloxi City Council on Tuesday will consider making fireworks legal in Biloxi on the Fourth of July, New Year’s Eve and in association with the annual Tet celebration.

Currently, the shooting of fireworks is illegal in Biloxi, although fireworks sales are permitted from mid-June to the Fourth of July and from Dec. 5 to Jan. 1.

The fireworks ordinance, which was originally considered Dec. 29 and tabled on Jan. 5, is among nearly two dozen measures on the council meeting agenda.
